    Not A Single Soul Asked For Phylicia Rashad's Pro–Bill Cosby Tweet, And Black Twitter Is Not Having It

    It cost $0.00 to not share tweets.

    Earlier today, it was announced that Bill Cosby will be released from prison.

    And not too long after this news broke, Phylicia Rashad — who played Bill Cosby's wife in The Cosby Showtweeted her support for him:

    FINALLY!!!! A terrible wrong is being righted- a miscarriage of justice is corrected!

    Needless to say, a lot of people are up in arms about this, ESPECIALLY since it costs 0 dollars and 0 cents to keep your thoughts to yourself:

    Claire Huxtable would HATE you for supporting a serial rapist. Horrible example you are setting for Rudy, Vanessa, Sondra and Denise. Horrible. As long as you're rich enough, you can rape all you want, your lawyers will get you off. This is what you believe, Phylicia? https://t.co/rFefF3t30K

    Dean Rashad, Is this how you're going to react when a Howard CoFA student tells you they were assaulted by another student if that student happens to be someone you like and admire? Because what you're telling Howard women rn is that you don't care if they're raped. https://t.co/cD2miBDGXD
