Despite coming forward claiming that former TV dad Bill Cosby drugged her back in the '80s, Beverly Johnson holds no ill will against the fallen icon. During an interview on Good Morning America, the supermodel took the high road, saying that she forgives him for what he's allegedly done.

According to TMZ, Johnson said that if she were to see him now, she would simply say, "I forgive you."

When asked what she thinks should happen to Cosby, she said that she would "leave that to the Justice Department." She continued, "I just feel that he is a lightning rod for a much bigger conversation and the conversation would be the rape culture in America."

Johnson's account became the deciding factor for many who doubted that Cosby was guilty of drugging several women for decades.
