Evin Cosby Speaks Out In Defense of Bill Cosby


Bill Cosby's youngest daughter Evin Cosby defends her father against accusations of sexual abuse...


Evin tells ABC News
"I am the youngest of five. I remember our family trips and moving to NYC just so we could be closer to my father as he worked. From the times he worked in Las Vegas to the Cosby show in NYC, he always wanted us to be close, to be a part of his whole life, at home and on stage. I felt loved and remembered loving the moments that my parents shared with us by exposing us to all types of people from all walks of life. We grew up appreciating my father's success because we knew the prejudice and racism he endured getting to where he got and how hard he worked for our family. Because I loved my childhood, I couldn't wait to have a family of my own. I have two amazing children who love their grandfather. I already work hard as a single mother, with no full time help, and with a career in fashion design, I am lucky that I have supportive friends that I call family because my children and I need that support.
The public persecution of my dad, my kids' grandfather, and the cruelty of the media and those who speak out branding my father a 'rapist' without ever knowing the truth and who shame our family and our friends for defending my dad, makes all of this so much worse for my family and my children. When people are so quick to cast hate and make accusations of horrific violence against my dad, they are callous in their carelessness about the harm they are causing to others.
I thought when my brother Ennis was murdered, that was the worst nightmare of all time. It's so hurtful to this day. I try to block out the day he was killed, but that pain has only worsened in these last years. For some reason, my family's pain has been a trigger for people to seize upon us harder.
On the same day that Ennis was murdered, a woman came out claiming that my father had a 'love child.' She was arrested for extortion. She was not my father's daughter.
On the day I gave birth to my son, another women came out, but that case was dismissed too -- the district attorney investigated her claims also and didn't press charges.
Two years ago, and over ten years later, several women came out. Like the woman from 2005, they claimed to have been raped and drugged. But, like the one from 2005, their stories didn't match up. But instead of going through the criminal justice system, these stories never got investigated and just got repeated. They have been accepted as the truth.
My dad tried to defend himself. His lawyers tried to defend him, but they all got sued. People were constantly reaching out to me about why doesn't your dad say something. I kept saying he's trying, but the media is only interested in the stories of the women. Friends of ours tried to help, but the media wouldn't print what they said or knew. Our friends that spoke up were pressured to shut up. No one wanted to print their supportive words. We live in a scandalous country where the more sexualized and provocative the story, the more attention it gets. We get all sorts of mixed up messages in our society. We are told that we have fundamental rights to be innocent until proven guilty. But, if enough people think you are a bad person, you are branded a bad person and the media just reinforces that. My dad, like anyone in this country, deserves to be treated fairly under the law.
My dad broke barriers and raised the conscious of America on important topics, especially for the advancement of women. On 'The Cosby Show' he only depicted women as smart and accomplished. On 'The Cosby Show' and on 'A Different World' he took on then taboo subjects like menstrual cycles and rape, and even did a show on AIDS before anyone else would bring it up.
I am his 4th daughter. He raised me to go to college, start my own business, and be my own woman. He is helping me raise my children and teach them family values. I know that my father loves me, loves my sisters and my mother. He loves and respects women. He is not abusive, violent or a rapist. Sure, like many celebrities tempted by opportunity, he had his affairs, but that was between him and my mother. They have worked through it and moved on, and I am glad they did for them and for our family.
The harsh and hurtful accusations of things that supposedly happened 40 or 50 years ago, before I was born, in another lifetime, and that have been carelessly repeated as truth without allowing my dad to defend himself and without requiring proof, has punished not just my dad but every one of us. They have punished the talented people who were still earning money and feeding their families from my dad's shows and work. I am pleased that finally we are seeing the whole picture and seeing cases and claims dismissed from court. I just hope that those who pre-judged my dad are now willing to admit that they were wrong."

I never believed the media and have always thought this was a witch hunt because Cosby wanted to buy into NBC. I don't trust white People and never will. I was so ashamed that black people persecuted him without knowing the facts. Black people love to throw their own race under the bus while dog barking for their oppressor. Wake up so called black people because you have always been lied to. Jesus is not your savior ( that was from your oppressor) but you believe everything you are told. Black Americans are not from Africa. Research your history for yourself because the Europeans want you to stay dumb. You can hoop and holla all you want but this is the truth.

So according to Evin, there are even more allegations than the public knew about from WAY BACK WHEN.

Which says to me, that these women were silenced. This story was a "shock" to many because the media was NOT running the stories of these women.

9:14 - And remember Mr. Cosby sold a story to the Enquirer in exchange for them squashing an article about him and women?

Poor Erinn, something may have happened to her in her life:

Ron,
You had me until you said Black Americans are not from Africa. If black people are not from Africa, where are we from? All ethnicities and civilizations originated from Africa. GTFOH!!

@10:37, Do you know your genealogy? I know mine. My ancestors where here in this land we now call America before the white man came. Some of us "blacks" were already here and are natives of this land.

@1053
I am glad you know your genealogy. However, the human race originated in Africa. Trust. Your ancestors/kinfolk originated from Africa too, then migrated to North America. Just like some migrated to Asia, Europe, etc. That's how this works. However, over the course of 400 years, the slave trade profited from Africans being directly brought to North America and other continents for free labor. The U.S. was built on the backs and off the blood of African abductees. This is common knowledge.

No matter what her father did for his family or for this world...Sadly it doesn't matter. Whether the accusations or true or false, the real problem is Mr. Cosby unfortunately got his N__er wake-up Call. Each and every celebrity has a file on them. We can thank J.Edgar Hoover for that. This file is filled with information that can hurt them if ever they step out of line or forget where they came from/Uppity N__er syndrome. I believe had Mr. Cosby not tried to buy into NBC, a deal that would've given him ever greater power...none of these things would have surfaced. Otherwise, he would have been outed many, many yrs ago and the secrets would have been kept covered as usual. This is what they do and is one major reason why many industry folk feel like they can get away with anything. Foolishly not realizing the heavy price it will eventually cost them for keeping their demons deeds from the public.

Steve Harvey is experiencing some of this Hollywood wake-up call, as we speak.

I know he regret messing around with those trashy as$ women, out there pill-popping, getting high, drinking, cheating, threesomes, orgies....thinking he was The Man...paying their rent, giving them money, buying them cars and homes, paying for school and scholarships, hooking them up with connections...he probably thought he bought them hoes (himself included)...he thought they would have been loyal... But them hoes ain't loyal. Paying for their boyfriends, kids, grandkids, great grandkids, family members (they got greedy)... Wtf??? When he cut off that money after all them years decades, Lol What's the statute on limitations on rape? One sued got money and the floodgates flew open, the legal system all of them got their cut... With all them black empowerment speaking tours, he must have on to something big and powerful, like actually sueing for reparations or something, something the PTB were threatened by if it gained national attention and support.
