In a recent interview with Billboard, actor, spoken word artist, and now Grammy-nominated musician Malcolm-Jamal Warner discusses the recent sexual assault allegations against Bill Cosby, his television dad on hit sitcom “The Cosby Show” and someone he considers his “mentor.” He says that it is “painful” to watch Cosby, his “friend” go through public accusations of crimes against multiple women.
“I can’t really speak on any of the allegations because obviously, I was not there. The Bill Cosby I know has been great to me and great for a lot of people. What he’s done for comedy and television has been legendary and history-making. What he’s done for the black community and education has been invaluable. That’s the Bill Cosby I know. I can’t speak on the other stuff.”
In addition, Warner’s Billboard interview discusses his work with his jazz-funk spoken word band, Miles Long, his surprise Grammy nomination for work on Robert Glasper’s Black Radio 2 album, and his recent acting gigs on American Horror Story and in a theatrical production of Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner.
