Bill Cosby’s Daughters Speak Out in Defense of Their Dad...

With their father’s sexual-assault trial looming, Bill Cosby’s daughters Ensa and Erinn released statements of support for their dad via NYC radio talk show “The Breakfast Club” Monday morning. 




Host Charlamagne Tha God said that he’d been approached by Cosby’s publicist because the comedian’s daughters listen “faithfully” to the show and wanted to speak out in advance of his June trial, in which he is facing three counts of felony aggravated indecent assault from an alleged encounter with accuser Andrea Constand in 2004.

“I am a very private person and have chosen to live my life quietly with my family. But for my child, my niece, my nephew, and my father, I cannot sit quietly anymore,” said Ensa, before going on to list her father’s many accomplishments in civil rights activism, parenting, entertainment, and philanthropy.

“The accusations against my father have been one-sided from the beginning. When he tried to defend himself, he was sued in civil court. I’ve seen the accusations become more horrific and extreme with time, and I’ve witnessed my father’s reputation and legendary works be dismissed without any proof,” Ensa said, referencing the 50 or so women who have accused Cosby, 79, of sexual assault. “I strongly believe my father is innocent of the crimes alleged against him, and I believe that racism has played a big role in all aspects of this scandal. How the charges came about being made against him, how people believed them before they were ever scrutinized or tested, how people who questioned the claims were shut down and ignored.”



She continued, “The media created the story and the outcome before any court will ever test the claims. How my father is being punished by a society that still believes black men rape white women but passes off as ‘boys will be boys’ when white men are accused. 



How the politics of our country prove my disgust. My father has been publicly lynched in the media. My family, my young daughter, my young niece and nephew have had to stand helplessly by and watch the double standards of pretending to protect the rights of some, but ignoring the rights of others and exposing innocent children to such appalling accusations about someone they love dearly and who has been so loving and kind to them is beyond cruel.”


Her sister Erinn, who became increasingly emotional as she spoke, added, “Over the last few years, my family has been forced to sit by and watch as our father has been attacked in the media. And it has been difficult to remain silent to protect our loved ones from scorn as gossip fueled in the news as big entertainment. But what you hear in the media is a far cry from who our father is.”

She acknowledged that their relationship has had some rocky moments but stands firm in her support of her dad.

“My father and I have not always seen eye to eye, but I know him like very few people do. And I will be the first to say that the acts of which my father is accused are unthinkable, knowing the man who is my dad … I know that people will try to shoot me down for speaking out and by bringing up past criticisms against me and my relationship with my dad, to which I say, I do not care. I love my father and always have and always will. I believe in his innocence and I know in my heart how he values me, my family, and the goodness that is in all people. I will never respect or understand a society that allows an accused to be convicted without proof and his or her day in court. It is truly unbelievable.”

Such a sad thing. He is even blind. The children book he authored was pulled from schools. Should he be punished? Yes but after the court has deemed it fit not the media. I feel somehow about the whole thing. Every society has double standards sha

I have always Bn surprised,shocked and somewhat "angry" (cos I watched his show religiously and thought of him as a good father figure)

But then,we know that people sometimes do things we never thought they could ever do. So in that vein, I always felt the court should decide.
And what he has experienced from the Court is story of another day.

And then,I read one Book not too long ago and my perception of the whole thing changed.

Before,I was shocked he may have done those things even though I didn't quite want to believe it. But right now,I have serious doubts. Very serious doubts.

Racism is one disease that if u haven't experienced,u may not understand. Esp the length some of them ignorant people go to bring a coloured man down.
And the power of the Media is another thing mitigating against him. He has Bn tried and found guilty already.

I am not saying he is innocent or guilty but there is just something about this whole thing. Something off. But guilty or innocent,I hope the truth comes out. It may not be today. But it wil eventually come out. The Truth always does.

Jimmy Savile didn't get away with his evil deeds. He was found out in death. And was severely dealt with and humiliated that many found it shocking.

In all,I pity him. A great deal. And wish this didn't have to happen to him. Especially if he is innocent.

I still have this believe he didn't do it and even if he did not with all those bunch of women. They are over 30 ommmfor Christ's sake! My pain is this last phase of his life, this old age he ought to be relaxing. So sad

Fine, even if he didn't do it!! He didn't deny having sex with 50+ women. You are telling me all of those women were consensual while he was married!!! I guess adultery is no longer a sin since his wife claims a strong catholic background. He spent all those years talking down at the black community saying black men are this and that.. but he was doing the same in his private life?? Just disgusting..
