Malcolm-Jamal Warner thinks Bill Cosby is getting “unbalanced” treatment in the media. The former The Cosby Show star even pointed to Woody Allen, among others, as an example of entertainers getting a pas despited alleged miscreant behavior.
Reports Page Six:
“You look at just how the media is playing this whole thing out and I can’t help but think about Woody Allen, Roman Polanski, Stephen Collins, [it’s] very clear the crimes they’ve committed,” Warner, 45, said in a pre-taped interview with “The Real” set for Monday. “But there is no one that’s calling for Woody’s movies to be pulled off the air.”
“Roman Polanski is still celebrated,” Warner added. “Stephen Collins’ show still comes on. It’s interesting how it’s very unbalanced.”
Director Polanski, 82, was jailed for having sex with a 13-year-old girl in 1977. Collins, 68, who was the star of “7th Heaven,” confessed to child molestation in 2014. Allen, 80, famously married Mia Farrow’s adopted daughter with Andre Previn, Soon Yi, in 1997.
While Cosby and his army of lawyers work to keep the 78-year-old television legend out of jail, the “Cosby Show” has been pulled from the airwaves.
“It’s literally taken money out of my pocket,” Warner said of the show. “So, I got my own personal feelings about that, because it personally affects me.”
So Warner is more concerned about his money versus say the well-being of the 50-plus women who have accused Bill Cosby of sexual assault? By making no mention of them, that’s what can be implied.
He also added, “I’m in no position to defend him, because I can’t. Nor will I throw him under the bus.”
The clip in question is only part of Warner’s commentary, so maybe he cleans this up in the full interview? Until then, watch below.
