Raven-Symoné, a former cast member of The Cosby Show, addressed the allegations against Bill Cosby on her Instagram account on Wednesday. She joined the conversation after a rumor emerged that she was one of Cosby's alleged victims.
Symoné, who played Cosby's step-granddaughter on the show, vehemently denies this rumor. She posted a photo of her character, Olivia, with a serious caption. "I was NOT taking advantage of by Mr. Cosby when I was on the Cosby Show!" wrote Symoné. "I was practically a baby on that show and this is truly a disgusting rumor that I want no part of."
The sexual assault allegations against Cosby have been simmering for years, but came front and center on November 11 when the comedian created a meme generator on his website. Instead of friendly jokes, users mocked up the memes to address the accusations against Cosby. Since then, more women are coming forward with stories about the comedian, the most recent being Janice Dickinson. Though the media has been increasingly vocal about this situation, Cosby himself remains silent.
Symoné's made her stance clear with this social media post. "Everyone on that show treated me with nothing but kindness. Now keep me out of this!"
