The Cosby Show's Keshia Knight Pulliam Discusses Bill Cosby Rape Accusations: He Was a 'Great' Man
“Ultimately, I really can’t speak to that. Whoever is involved, those are the people who were there. I wasn’t there,” the 35-year-old said to Access Hollywood. “I can only speak to the great man that I know and love, who has been so generous, who has been such a philanthropist and giving back millions of dollars to education and schools. And just the man I grew up knowing. It’s really not my place to speak on that. Unfortunately, in the court of public opinion everyone has formed their opinion, but we’re still in America and you’re innocent until proven guilty of any crimes.”
“He was awesome, he was the guy who made jokes with me to make me remember my lines… he’s the man who inspired me to be such an entrepreneur… I feel that his legacy and all the great things he’s done speak volumes,” Keshia added about her on-screen dad. “Everything that’s happened, it’s so unfortunate, the whole thing is very, very unfortunate. I can’t ignore the legacy he’s built.”
Keshia was recently a contestant on Celebrity Apprentice and (SPOILER ALERT) was recently fired for not calling Bill up during her challenge.
