Raven-Symone Slams Story Claiming Bill Cosby Assaulted Her
The actress calls a story written on a fake news site "a disgusting rumor"
Raven-Symone is speaking out against a story that ran on a parody news site claiming Bill Cosby molested her when she was a child actress on The Cosby Show.
The parody news site Hip Hop Hangover ran a story this week stating Symone had filed molestation charges against Cosby.
"I was NOT taking [sic] advantage of by Mr. Cosby when I was on the Cosby Show," Symone wrote on her Instagram account Wednesday. "I was practically a baby on that show and this is truly a disgusting rumor that I want no part of! Everyone on that show treated me with nothing but kindness. Now keep me out of this!"
Symone, 28, played Olivia from 1989-1992 on The Cosby Show.
Cosby is facing resurfaced allegations of sexual assault, which have prompted NBC to scrap a planned series, Netflix to "postpone" a comedy special, and TV Land to pull repeats of The Cosby Show. Cosby has denied the allegations through statements from his reps and attorneys. The most recent allegation came Tuesday from former supermodel Janice Dickinson, who alleged Cosby raped her in 1982.
