Actor Bill Cosby was accused of rape. However, some people believe that purpose of such accusations is to destroy successful black men.
Eddie Griffin is the one who revealed this theory.
Cosby was charged with aggravated indecent assault in Pennsylvania on Wednesday after a woman said he drugged and abused her in his home 12 years ago, but Griffin believes the multiple claims made against Cosby are part of something bigger than that.
“There is a systematic effort to destroy every black male entertainer’s image,” Griffin said during an interview this week. “They want us all to have an asterisk by our name.”
Griffin used other examples, like the rape accusations brought against Kobe Bryant in 2003 and the child molestation accusations brought against Michael Jackson.
