With more and more women coming out over the past few days and accusing legendary comedian Bill Cosby of rape, Raven-Symone would like to go on record:

She is NOT one of them.

The 28-year old actress, forever known as Olivia from The Cosby Show to fans of that classic sitcom, found herself entangled in the Cosby scandal today, with chatter around the Internet alleging Bill Cosby sexually assaulted her.

To that rumor, Symone had the following to say via Facebook:

“I was NOT taking advantage of by Mr. Cosby when I was on the Cosby Show! 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!”


A few weeks ago, comedian Hannibal Buress quipped in a stand-up routine about the fact that Cosby has been accused of rape by at least 13 women over the years.

Most of these alleged incidents took place over four decades ago.

Since then, supposed victims such as Joan Tarshis have come forward, sharing horrifying stories about how Cosby drugged them and forced them to perform various sexual acts.

Even supermodel Janice Dickinson claims Cosby sexually assaulted her.

Cosby’s attorney has denied all allegations, though the star himself has remained quiet. In response, Netflix has postponed a planned comedy special with Cosby and NBC has pulled the plug on a new sitcom featuring the actor.

This evening, meanwhile, TV Land yanked all reruns of The Cosby Show off the air.
