Actress Phylicia Rashad Forced To Apologize for Bill Cosby Tweet, Will Be Reprogrammed

Actress Phylicia Rashad sent a letter to Howard University students and parents on Friday, offering “[her] most sincere apology” for tweeting in celebration of Bill Cosby’s sexual assault conviction being overturned.” My remarks were in no way directed towards survivors of sexual assault. I vehemently oppose sexual violence, find no excuse for such behavior, and I know that Howard University has a zero-tolerance policy toward interpersonal violence,” Rashad wrote. In May, Rashad, an alumna of Howard University, was appointed dean of its recently reestablished College of Fine Arts.

Obviously Rashad and/or her handlers weren’t aware of cancel culture when she sent the tweet. But the backlash towards a veteran actress of such magnitude proves that anybody can get it these days.
