Bill Cosby's wife, Camille, has remained relatively mum all throughout the duration of his retrial. However, she recently broke her silence in a lengthy statement that was posted to the fallen comedian's Facebook page.
In it, she made a claim that may be considered shocking to some and vehemently defended her husband's honor.
In regard to her husband of 54 years being found guilty on all three counts of felony and aggravated indecent assault, last week, Mrs. Cosby explained that, in her opinion, the odds were against the comic before the case even began. Like Cosby's publicist, she also disturbingly used the metaphor of lynching to articulate her point.
"In the case of Bill Cosby, unproven accusations evolved into lynch mobs, who publicly and privately coerced cancellations of Bill Cosby's scheduled performances; syndications of The Cosby Show; rescissions of honorary degrees and a vindictive attempt to close an exhibition of our collection of African American art in the Smithsonian Museum of African Art," she wrote. "And all of that occurred before the trial even started."
In another explosive assessment of the case, she went on to list her biggest gripe with the Pennsylvania Montgomery County Courthouse, claiming that the rulings were based off of a district attorney's campaign promises.
"Three criminal charges, promised during an unethical campaign for the district attorney's office, were filed against my husband... all based on what I believe to be a falsified account by the newly elected district attorney's key witness," she continued.
Mrs. Cosby went on to place blame on the district attorney, further claiming that her husband's defense team discredited their witness, and despite these measures being taken, the court still ruled against him.
"I am publicly asking for a criminal investigation of that district attorney and his cohorts," she wrote. "This is a homogenous group of exploitative and corrupt people, whose primary purpose is to advance themselves professionally and economically at the expense of Mr. Cosby's life. If they can do this to Mr. Cosby, they can do so to anyone."
She ended the lengthy and pro-Cosby statement with these words: "Someday the truth will prevail, it always does."
Upon the spreading of her statement, Twitter has lit Mrs. Cosby aflame in light of her defending her husband's actions and blaming the court system for the ultimate outcome:
