Bill Cosby's youngest daughter, Evin Cosby, is speaking out about the mounting allegations of sexual assault against her father.
On Tuesday, the 38-year-old released a brief statement to Access Hollywood:
He is the FATHER you thought you knew. The Cosby Show was my today's tv reality show. Thank you. That's all I would like to say :).
A woman claiming to be Evin has also been actively posting about the allegations on her Facebook page.
"Rape is a serious allegation and it is suppose to be taken VERY seriously but so is Falsely accusing someone. When someone rapes a person they go to prison," she wrote Monday. "THAT should also happen to the person that has wrongfully accused an innocent victim. They are not ONLY destroying innocent people's life they are ALSO making it hard for the MEN and Women to find justice when they have been raped."
Cosby's wife of 50 years, Camille, released a statement to CBS News on Monday, claiming her husband is not the person the media has painted him as in light of the recent accusations. Camille went on to compare the claims against her husband to a recent Rolling Stone article that detailed an alleged gang rape at the University of Virginia, for which the publication has since issued an apology to its readers citing what it called "discrepancies" in the victim's account.
To date, more than 20 women have made allegations against "The Cosby Show" star, and the statements of support from Cosby's family come after the actor told a reporter he only expects the "black media to uphold the standards of excellence in journalism," urging the media to approach the allegations with a "neutral mind."
