Jasmine Guy Says Bill Cosby’s Sexual Assault Scandal Has Been ‘Heartbreaking’ for the Black Community

Jasmine Guy, Bill Cosby

Jasmine Guy opened up about the Bill Cosby sexual assault scandal and how the case has affected the Black community.

“I couldn’t really put the two images together,” said Guy of Cosby’s tarnished reputation. The two worked together on “The Cosby Show” spinoff “A Different World.”

Accusations of drugging and sexually assaulting women eventually led to Cosby being convicted of aggravated indecent assault involving accuser Andrea Constand in September 2018 and sentenced to three to 10 years in state prison. Last summer, Cosby was freed in June 2021 on a technicality after the Pennsylvania State Supreme Court vacated his conviction.

Guy noted that the case is “heartbreaking because he meant a lot to the community,” adding, “It’s heartbreaking for those of us in the business that admire him, his talent and his mind.”
