If you ever wanted to know exactly how "shit hitting the fan" sounds, it's the noise Black America's making this morning as news that everyone's single favorite person ever, Phylicia Rashad, has come out in defense of Bill Cosby, vehemently disputing the claims that her former co-star sexually assaulted 20-something women.

Rashad said this was all an orchestrated campaign to keep the 77-year-old comedian off the air.

"Forget these women," she said. "What you're seeing is the destruction of a legacy. And I think it's orchestrated. I don't know why or who's doing it, but it's the legacy. And it's a legacy that is so important to the culture … Someone is determined to keep Bill Cosby off TV, and it's worked. All his contracts have been canceled."
