Bill Cosby's Nephew Braxton Speaks Out On The Rape Claims Made Against His Uncle

Bill Cosby's nephew, Braxton Cosby, has spoken up about the sexual assault allegations made against his uncle, according to People.

Braxton, the CEO of Cosby Media Productions, opened up to FarrahGray.com about what he said are "unjustified claims" of rape against his uncle. He said he believes his uncle is innocent and promised to remain on his side.

He also shared how the accusations affected his family, saying the issue was able to let him realize who his real friends are. He also likened the situation to a passage in the Bible.

"I would be more inclined to compare it to the passage in the Bible where the people of the village were about to stone the woman caught in adultery and Jesus challenged them by saying that the person who without sin should cast the first one," Braxton said.

He continued, "The one difference in this case being that the woman was caught in the act and her accusers brought her forward."

He then mentioned the justice system in the country, saying "I want to remind everyone that we live in the greatest country in the entire world, one that prides itself on the moral law that everyone is innocent until proven guilty."

Braxton's statement comes after two shows headlining Bill were cancelled, according to Time.

More than a dozen women, including former supermodel Janice Dickinson and former actress Barbara Bowman, have come forward to claim they were sexually assaulted by the legendary comedian.

Many of Bill's slated shows, including future projects with Netflix and his former home network NBC, have been axed in the wake of the allegations, according to BBC.

Bill has remained silent about the allegations and their effects on his career and personal life, but his laywer Marty Singer had dismissed the claims as "fantastical stories" and accused the media of running stories without substantial evidence, according to the Associated Press, quoted via the Business Insider.
