With a new album about to drop on Thursday, Kanye West has been a little more active on Twitter lately. This includes updates from the studio, beefs with Wiz Khalifa and Amber Rose, and this Bill Cosby tweet:
“BILL COSBY INNOCENT !!!!!!!!!!” tweeted the rapper and fashion designer.
BILL COSBY INNOCENT !!!!!!!!!!

Cosby, of course, has been publicly accused of nearly 60 sexual assaults, the earliest beginning in the 1960s. Cosby has denied the allegations.
Comedian Sarah Silverman took issue with Kanye’s tweet, saying,
“Kanye!! You can’t be for real. FIFTY WOMEN. With nothing to gain thanks to a statute of limitations ON RAPE. Oy.”

On “Facts”, a track Kanye released on New Year’s Eve, he raps:
“Do anybody feel bad for Bill Cosby? / Did he forget the names just like Steve Harvey?”
So we’re not exactly sure where Kanye stands on the whole Bill Cosby thing, but this latest tweet leaves little question.
