Bill Cosby has defended his on-screen wife following controversy after she tweeted her support for him when his sexual assault conviction was overturned.

Phylicia Rashad, who starred in The Cosby Show, tweeted on Wednesday that “a terrible wrong has been righted”.

The tweet was then removed. A follow-up post said she “fully supported sexual abuse survivors coming forward”.

Cosby defended Rashad after Howard University, where she is a dean, said her first tweet “lacked sensitivity”.

But Cosby backed his former co-star’s original comments and criticised the university’s stance in his own statement.

Cosby compared the media to those who stormed the US Capitol in January, and claimed that his conviction was not overturned on a “technicality.”
