R. Kelly probably needs any positive endorsement he can get after being found guilty of racketeering in his federal sex crimes trial, but maybe not from someone else with an allegedly checkered past. Bill Cosby has chimed in on Kelly’s explosive case by saying the Chicago native was “railroaded” in his case and Twitter has some thoughts.
TMZ caught up with Cosby’s representative Andrew Wyatt in Beverly Hills and obtained a statement on the comedian’s behalf regarding Kelly’s case. By way of Wyatt, Cosby says that the justice system “railroaded” Kelly and that Cosby’s and Kelly’s legal troubles were sparked because of them being successful Black men.
Wyatt also made mention of the fact that Kelly was denied bond but that Harvey Weinstein, also accused of heinous sex crimes, was able to avoid jail time. Wyatt then took a swipe at Gloria Allred, calling her legal maneuvers “racist” without a flinch.
The reactions to Bill Cosby’s statements by way of Andrew Wyatt have stirred up comments from many. We’ve got the reactions below.
Yes, because Bill Cosby is the moral compass we’re in need of at a time like this. https://t.co/OkFD0PVaEW

Sure we know how Bill Cosby feels about rapists but I’m waiting to hear from Harvey Weinstein, Donald Trump, and Roman Polanski before deciding how I feel about R. Kelly.

Bill Cosby could've just slithered away from prison.
But no. Of course he's out here defending child sex trafficker R. Kelly. pic.twitter.com/xI6GKcN70K

Wouldn’t Bill Cosby have once dragged R Kelly because of his non-family friendly music? Now, he’s a member of the Brotherhood of Rapists.
