Evin Cosby has joined her mother, Camille, by sharing her own words of support for her father, the embattled Bill Cosby.

The comedian’s daughter reacted to the myriad accusations by saying “rape is a serious allegation” but so is “falsely accusing someone.”

“When someone rapes a person they go to prison,” Evin, 38, wrote on her Facebook page. “THAT should also happen to the person that has wrongfully accused an innocent victim. They are not ONLY destroying innocent people’s life they are ALSO making it hard for the MEN and women to find justice when they have been raped.”

She also questioned claims by her dad’s accusers, who alleged they were drugged. To date, the comedian has been dogged by accusations that he drugged and sexually assaulted more than a dozen women – former models Beverly Johnson and Janice Dickinson, among them.

“You can remember the whole damn day but you were drugged? Just sayin,” wrote Evin, who owns and operates a boutique store called PB & Caviar in the Tribeca neighborhood of New York City. “Memory … you can remember you looked at (allegedly) each other, people were staring allegedly remembering your home address allegedly the name you called him allegedly. But you were allegedly drugged.”

Evin also called for other people who have been falsely accused to stand up and be heard.

“Men and women need to stand up and say something. There are plenty of them that have experienced being accused of a major crime that they NEVER committed. Let’s hear your voice!”
