Bill Cosby Tweets Thanks To Whoopi Goldberg, Jill Scott For The Support Amidst Sexual Assault Allegations

Comedian Bill Cosby has extended his thanks to a couple of his celebrity friends who have been openly supporting him amidst the sexual assaults allegations made against him, according to Us.

Cosby's Twitter account posted a message on Dec. 3 to comedian and host Whoopi Goldberg and singer-actress Jill Scott, thanking them for standing by the embattled comedian.

"Thank you @WhoopiGoldberg," said Cosby's tweet to the comedian. "Thank you @MissJillScott, from the Cosby Family," read his message for Scott.

Goldberg voiced out her thoughts about the rape claims made against Cosby in her show The View in November, according to The Wrap.

"Quite honestly, look, I'm sorry, having been on both sides of this where people allege that you do something - it doesn't matter now. The cat is out of the bag, people have it in their head," Goldberg said on the show's Nov. 17 episode.

"I have a lot of questions for the lady, maybe she'll come on," she added, pertaining to former actress Barbara Bowman, who wrote an op-ed for the Washington Post about her alleged non-consensual sexual experiences with Cosby.

"Who's going to believe that? Bill Cosby? Doctor Huxtable?" Goldberg asked of Bowman's claims. "Perhaps the police might have believed it. Or the hospital. Don't you do a kit when you say someone has raped you?"

Scott, on the other hand, took to Cosby's defense on Twitter. She was asked to sign a petition to oust the comedian from the Board of Trustees of their alma mater Temple University but refused to do so, according to the Hollywood Reporter. Cosby stepped down from the post earlier this week.

Answering the request to sign the petition on Twitter, Scott said: "Oh ok. So they've proven the alleged allegations? I didn't know. Will they also be giving him back the millions he's donated?"

More than a dozen women have come forward to claim they were sexually abused by Cosby, the latest are two women who said they were groped and abused by the comedian in the late 1980's according to CBC.
