Why The Bill Cosby Conspiracy Isn’t One

Recommended Posts

It was called nothing more than false accusations when several women came forward with drugged rape stories committed by America’s beloved comedian Bill Cosby. Conspiracy theories quickly followed, most with racial prejudice undertones.
The crux of the conspiracy theories was that someone or some group was trying to destroy Cosby’s legacy. There was a massive conspiracy underfoot to bring down one of the most powerful black entertainers (1).

At least, this is what “The Cosby Show” co-star Phylicia Rashad stated in a January 2015 Showbiz 411 interview (2).

Rashad played Clair Huxtable, wife to Cosby’s character. One of his staunchest and most vocal defenders, Rashad implied the multiple allegations were some kind of smear campaign designed to defame and disgrace the now 78-year old comedian.

During the Showbiz 411 interview, Rashad stated, “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.” She accused unknown persons of sabotaging Cosby’s return to TV in an effort to “keep Bill Cosby off TV.”

But, there was no motive given for attacking the Cosby legacy. Many conspiracy enthusiasts claimed it was racially motivated. Others tweeted that the conspiracy was created to mar a black person’s achievements.
