The Cosby Show's Keshia Knight Pulliam Discusses Bill Cosby Rape Accusations: He Was a 'Great' Man

Keshia Knight Pulliam, who played Rudy Huxtable on The Cosby Show, is speaking out about Bill Cosby‘s sexual assault allegations against many women.

“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.

    Bill Cosby Rape Facts: Based on historic serial rapist data statistics Bill Cosby is an international serial rapist. 98% of victims tell the truth; 5% of rape crimes are reported. 2% of victims lie; 95% of rape crimes are never reported because victims fear rapist reprisal. These statistics and supporting links are provided in detail below. As of March 1, 2015, 35 women have accused Cosby of rape. These 35 women represent only 5% of the victims Cosby raped. Cosby, a sociopath serial rapist, lacks conscience, empathy, remorse, guilt or shame. We must never ever grow tired of hearing about or supporting rape victims. If you still doubt these statistics, you too Cosby, imagine one of these victims is a member of your own family, and then, please do your own research.

    WHY! VICTIMS MATTER! These victims represent all of us, our families, our children, daughters, wives, mothers and sisters. When our courts and countries fail to protect our families we must take action. When our “so called” leaders and professionals tell us there is nothing we can do, it’s time for new leaders and professionals. Rapist Cosby didn’t rape just once 30 years ago, Cosby’s been raping for 50 years. We intend to pursue rapist Crosby until laws are fixed, he is convicted, he admits his guilt and or he dies. We may forgive, we will NEVER FORGET! Rapist Cosby has no one to blame but himself. Let’s be clear, rapist Crosby owns this.

    Agree! Please take this link viral. WHY! VICTIMS MATTER! Help stop rapist Cosby’s ongoing reprisal threats against the women who have accused him of rape. Tell a friend and make a difference TODAY.
