While doing press for her role in Will to Love (which stars Marques Houston and Draya Michele), child actress Keisha Knight Pulliam continued to defend the legacy of Bill Cosby and The Cosby Show in an interview with The Grio.
“I can say that, based upon the people that continuously approach me and talk about how it’s profoundly impacted their lives, I don’t feel you can take that back. You can’t take back the impact that it’s had on generations of kids, and it’s continuing to have such a positive impact on them. So I feel like the place that it has in people’s hearts is such a nostalgic part of childhood and beyond, it’s going to be difficult to take back those memories.”
So where does she stand now that there are over 50 women who have accused Cosby of sexual assault?
“My comment doesn’t really change, because, still, regardless of how many… that’s just not the man I know. That’s not who I experienced. I never had that interaction with him, so I can’t speak to it.”
Do you agree with her loyalty?
