Another former cast member of the legendary ‘Cosby Show’ is coming to the defense of Bill Cosby after months of allegations of sex abuse.

Phylicia Rashad, who played the embattled comedian's wife on the popular sitcom, has broken her silence about the 24 women who have accused Cosby of rape.

In an interview, Rashad said, “Forget these women. What you’re seeing is the destruction of a legacy. And I think it’s orchestrated. I don’t know why or who’s doing it, but it’s the legacy. And it’s a legacy that is so important to the culture.”

Rashad says she sees the controversy as part of a larger plot.

“Someone is determined to keep Bill Cosby off TV,” she said. “And it’s worked. All his contracts have been canceled.”

Cosby has been accused of harassing, drugging and sexually assaulting multiple women.

No charges have been filed against Cosby.
