Covering this story irritates me but here it goes… Remy Ma thinks that Bill Cosby is partially innocent. Don’t ask me how he is partially innocent… but whatever. The rapper defended “Pill” Cosby during a heated discussion on this week’s episode of Revolt’s “State of The Culture”.

“I’m defending people that have been done wrong, not only by the system and by people that lie, people that go on bandwagons,” she said. “I’m not saying that every one of them is lying. Yes, 60 women came out, but when I sat there and listened to them, I feel that some of them were lying. I feel like some of them are not telling the truth.”
Despite admitting that some of Cosby’s accusers might be telling the truth, Ma still thinks that racism is the main reason why he was taken down.
“The higher up you are, in the public eye, especially when your skin is this color, they love to tear people and bring them down,” she said. “If it was the other way around, when you start naming the Donald Trumps and the Weinsteins and the Matt Lauers. … Had it been 60 women, with 50 of them being white women, do you think there would be white women like ‘Yes! Yes! He did it!’ No, they wouldn’t, they’d be sitting here saying the same thing I’m saying.”
She also put the onus on women, saying they need to step and make clear to men they won’t be anyone’s victim and not “hold it in for 15 years, 20 years, 25 years.”
“As women we need to maybe stand up a little bit more. Don’t be scared to come out and then you won’t have to worry,” she said. “I’m a woman. You think I’ve never been in a situation where a dude tried to take advantage of me? But I’m going to say something.”
Cosby was found guilty on three felony counts of aggravated indecent assault for drugging and molesting former Temple University basketball administrator Andrea Constand in 2004 during his retrial in April.
Late last month, he was ruled a “sexually violent predator” and sentenced to three to 10 years in prison.
