Jill Scott changes her tune about Bill Cosby in this Twitter rant
Once a vocal Bill Cosby supporter, Jill Scott has done a complete 180 today — and her tweets are a little heartbreaking.
Back in December, Scott defended Cosby against mounting sexual assault allegations, saying, "I side with substantiated proof when media/society is attempting to destroy a magnificent Legacy… I'm respecting a man who has done more for the image of Brown people that almost anyone EVER (sic)."
But after Cosby's 2005 deposition in a sexual assault lawsuit was released, proving he admitted to drugging women, the singer has been forced to rethink her formerly staunch opinion.
On one level, what she says makes sense — she didn't want to jump to conclusions without proof. But now that the proof is before us, you can't help but feel sorry for her. Her image of her hero has been totally destroyed.
