Interestingly, West also mentioned Cosby on his recent song "Facts," saying "Do anybody feel bad for Bill Cosby?/Did he forget the names just like Steve Harvey?"
Kanye is actually not the first celebrity to come to Cosby's defense. Everyone from The View's Whoopi Goldberg and Raven-Symoné to Joey Bada$$ to the Game to Floyd Mayweather have spoken out in defense of the beleaguered icon. "Y'all put Dr. Huxtable in jail off word of mouth," wrote the Game on Instagram. The controversy has become a pop culture flash point; critics of Cosby have accused deniers of supporting rape culture, while his supporters have claimed the backlash against the actor finds its roots in America's racism. Either way, it looks like Cosby has Kanye on his side.
West has been much more active on Twitter recently, largely due to his upcoming album T.L.O.P., which is set to drop this Thursday, Feb. 11. In between promoting his album and his upcoming fashion show, he also made headlines for getting into it with Wiz Khalifa over his album's previous title WAVES. He followed up his Cosby remarks with another tweet teasing the album.
