Singer Jill Scott was among Bill Cosby’s most visible supporters. She said last year that the media and the accusers were trying to destroy Cosby’s “magnificent legacy.” Scott tweeted last November in Cosby’s defense: “u know Bill Cosby? I do child and this is insane. Proof. Period.” Because up until then — in fact up until yesterday — Jill Scott didn’t think 30 or so women coming forward telling the same story about how Bill Cosby drugged and raped them was proof.
Scott’s mind changed yesterday after Cosby’s admission of drugging women was revealed in the unsealed testimony from a case against him in 2005. Scott now believes the sworn testimony Cosby himself gave apparently. She’s still a little defensive though, saying that proof is “ALL I have ever required to believe the accusations.” It’s just the opposite of the way comedian Jay Leno thought about the Cosby case. Leno — and it should have gotten more attention — simply said: “I don’t know why it’s so hard to believe women. You [go to] Saudi Arabia and you need two women to testify against a man. Here you need 25.” Why, indeed.
About Bill Cosby. Sadly his own testimony offers PROOF of terrible deeds, which is ALL I have ever required to believe the accusations.
