Bill Cosby is set to be released after Pennsylvania’s highest court overturned his sexual assault conviction on Wednesday afternoon.

The 83-year-old served more than two years of his three to ten year sentence at a Philadelphia state prison.


Philadelphia’s Supreme Court discovered an agreement with a previous prosecutor that prevented the comedian from being charged for allegedly drugging and molesting Andrea Constand in 2004.

After the news broke, Rashad tweeted, “FINALLY!!!! A terrible wrong is being righted- a miscarriage of justice is corrected!”

Fans began expressing their disappointment in The Cosby Show star after she expressed her solidarity with the disgraced comedian.

“As a @HowardU School of Fine Arts alum, and as a survivor, this tweet from @PhyliciaRashad is disappointing. I hope we can have a dean who believes & respects survivors,” one user tweeted.

Another user chimed in, “She was quite public about supporting him before @HowardU hired her. So I have to assume they stand by this until I hear otherwise.”
