Bill Cosby's TV son is refusing to side for or against the embattled comedian amid his sexual assault scandal, revealing he finds it difficult to believe the comic raped over 50 women.
Cosby stands accused of drugging and/or sexually assaulting a long list of women over the past few five decades, but The Cosby Show star Malcolm-Jamal Warner is reserving his judgment until his former TV dad is officially found guilty or not guilty.
The 45-year-old actor, who is currently portraying O.J. Simpson's friend Al Cowlings on TV drama The People v O.J. Simpson, tells SiriusXM's Conversations with Maria Menounos, "The media has really helped make it such a big circus, and there are so many things that are thrown into the pot that things get really muddy.
"There are so many levels to what's going on that people are led to believe one thing when it's not as black or white as people think it may be."
Warner urges Cosby's critics to take a closer look at the facts, adding, "What we're told is 50 women are accusing him (Cosby) of rape. That's not true. Fifty women have not said that. So you have to break down the numbers...
"Some of the women are saying, 'Well he talked to me inappropriately, he grabbed my wrist...' If you really look at it and break it down, it's like, 'No, 50 women are not saying he raped me'."
Warner's comments on Wednesday (10Feb16) come hours after Kanye West waded into the Cosby scandal by declaring "Bill Cosby INNOCENT !!!!!!!!!!" on Twitter.com.
The tweet lit up social media as followers, critics and celebrities alike took sides.
Cosby, 78, faces an aggravated indecent assault charge for allegedly drugging and sexually assaulting Andrea Constand in his Pennsylvania home in 2004. Earlier this month, model Chloe Goins dropped a civil suit against the comedian stemming from an alleged assault at the Playboy Mansion.
Seven other women are suing the comedian for defamation.
Cosby has denied all the allegations.
