“Dr. Cosby is a class act,” Eddie Griffin stated in an interview with Vlad TV.
He went on to talk about how Bill Cosby called him when he started filming Malcolm & Eddie and how they found a connection right away because they’re both Cancers. Cosby then would bring Griffin on to his set where Cosby essentially mentored him.
When asked about Cosby’s accusers Griffin also shared his opinion and stood by Cosby’s side.
“First off you have to remember this was in the ‘70s,” Griffin said. “I’m old enough to remember the ‘70s. The ‘70s is a different time… mother fuckers all had coke spoons around their necklace… you want to level out after a hit of cocaine you get a Quaalude. So did he rape these bitches? All of them said the same thing. We went to the room. Why would you go to the room of a known married man, number one.”
Griffin also appeared to be both annoyed and suspicious that claims were made thirty years later.
“That’s like a mother fucker robbing me and I wait thirty years to call the police,” he continued. “I got robbed in 1984. And it’s him! [laughter].”
The interviewer mentioned that it is past the statute of limitations for the charges to which Griffin responded, “There is a systematic effort to destroy every black male entertainers image. They want us all to have an asterisk next to our name… nobody leaves this business clean.”
He continued to sing Cosby’s praises, mentioning how he was responsible for sending several black men and women to college before chiming in with “and then some pussy is supposed to tear that down”.
Griffin then brought Roman Polanski into the conversation and said “I don’t see them fucking with that mother fucker… Michael Jackson might have wanted to flee the country. He didn’t get to flee. There’s a difference.”
He then mentioned that Michael Jackson’s accusers have since recanted their stories and that he also knew Jackson very well.
