Howard University students and alumni are calling for “Cosby Show” actress Phylicia Rashad’s firing from the school, where she serves as its dean of College of Fine Arts.
The actress was met with swift criticism after backtracking an earlier statement in which she celebrated the shocking news that her longtime TV husband Bill Cosby’s sex assault conviction had been overturned by Pennsylvania’s highest court.
Earlier on Wednesday, the 73-year-old praised the ruling, stating, “FINALLY!!!! A terrible wrong is being righted- a miscarriage of justice is corrected!”
Rashad accompanied the post with a photo of her former co-star, 83.
