Real or not? Alleged Lisa Bonet Tweet makes an ugly statement about Bill Cosby

Published On November 23, 2014 | By Admin | The latest posts, What's happening right now

Controversy has erupted over a tweet that appeared to come from an account owned by actress Lisa Bonet.  The message was one that seemed to slickly implicate Bill Cosby as the predator that the media is making him out to be.   Cosby’s attorneys have warned that the media frenzy may lead to people jumping on the band wagon and making false allegations to add to the onslaught of rumors that have flooded this web, and this appears to be no exception.

It turns out that the tweet may not have been from Lisa Bonet after all.  Although The New York Post, Fox News and a few other sites have reported the tweet as authentic, the account has been disabled since it was released to the public.  Here’s what it said:

“According to the karma of past actions, one’s destiny unfolds, even though everyone wants to be so lucky… Nothing stays in the dark 4ever!” the Tweet stated.

After the tweet was released, various outlets have now started to say that the tweet may not be authentic.  So, we don’t know what the heck is going on.

 Bill recently performed to a standing ovation, sold-out crowd in Florida, so he he has his share of supporters.  But he continues to have detractors, and the heat is getting hot on the old comedian.  At some point, he may have to make a statement, or he may choose to live out the remainder of his days in shame and silence.   NBC and TV Land have already parted ways with Cosby, and aren’t going to air anything with his name on it.
One thing Cosby’s accusers don’t have, however, is actual evidence that he committed any of these crimes.  That’s pretty much all Cosby has to hold onto right now.    What do you think?  Are the allegations enough, or do they need more proof?
MentalFloss.com gives an interesting take on exactly what happened between Bonet and Cosby.  Their POV is that Cosby actually tried very hard to keep Bonet around, especially since she was a fan favorite.  But Bonet’s rebellious nature made it difficult to work with her.  But there are always three sides to every story:  His side, her side and the truth.  Here’s what they said:

With her typical teenage carefree attitude and her cutting-edge fashion sense, Denise Huxtable became an audience favorite early in the series. Lisa Bonet, who portrayed the character, received the most fan mail and was the media darling during the first season of the show, particularly amongst male teenagers. Bonet exhibited unprofessional behavior on the set (arriving late every day, being argumentative, etc.), so Cosby chose to pass the buck by “spinning off” her character into her own series, A Different World. Always a cheerleader when it came to touting higher education, Cosby was eager to spotlight the daily lives of students at a predominantly black university. Bonet thumbed her nose at this opportunity, however, and disrupted things further by announcing her pregnancy and engagement to musician Lenny Kravitz. Ever-tolerant Cosby temporarily brought Denise back to the Huxtable fold (until oversized shirts failed to conceal her impending motherhood) and then sent her character off to Africa to work as a photographer’s assistant.

Other accounts by insiders claim that Bonet was often unhappy with Cosby and didn’t care much for the chance to be on the show.  Fox News says that in 2002, when Bonet turned down a chance to be a part of a reunion show, she told Bill and everyone else to get lost.

“Year after year, we watched Bill throw Lisa one bone after another, and all she did was bite his hand. The rest of us were happy to be on a hit show, but Lisa didn’t seem to appreciate her good fortune.”
