It seems that with each passing day, a different female steps forward claiming that she was sexually assaulted by Bill Cosby. However, Raven-Symone took to Instagram to let people know that she is not one of the accusers.

A recent fake news report claimed that Symone filed molestation charges against Cosby. Symone responded by calling the report "disgusting." The actress was only 4-years-old when she first appeared as Olivia Kendall, Denise Huxtable's stepdaughter, on The Cosby Show.

The 28-year-old posted a picture of herself on her Instagram account as a little girl and wrote in the caption, "I was NOT [taken] advantage of by Mr. Cosby when I was on the Cosby Show! I was practically a baby on that show and this is truly a disgusting rumor that I want no part of! Everyone on that show treated me with nothing but kindness. Now keep me out of this!"

Cosby has opted to stay silent on the situation, even as more accusers come forward. His lawyer, John P. Schmitt, said of the allegations, "The fact that they are being repeated does not make them true. Mr. Cosby does not intend to dignify these allegations with any comment." Schmitt added, "He (Cosby) would like to thank all his fans for the outpouring of support and assure them that, at age 77, he is doing his best work. There will be no further statement from Mr. Cosby or any of his representatives."
