R&B singer Jill Scott has publicly revealed her disgust in Hollywood icon Bill Cosby following the release of new court documents claiming he admitted to previously trying to drug a woman.
Scott, who had previously defended Cosby amid the accusations, went into a Twitter tirade with her new stance last night (July 6).
Hollywood director Judd Apatow has also relied on social media to react to the news.
It's a very sad situation. Now can we all stand up and support the victims? Will silence continue? https://t.co/0tfYB5rb7p

Back in November 2014, Scott publicly stood behind Cosby.
@ShelbyKnox oh ok. So they've proven the alleged allegations? I didn't know. Will they also be giving him back the millions he's donated?
