Supermodel Beverly Johnson Shows Forgiveness to Bill Cosby


Supermodel Beverly Johnson Shows Forgiveness to Bill Cosby

Earlier this year, former model Beverly Johnson, came forward and accused Bill Cosby of drugging her in the mid-80’s during an audition. During her recount of the incident, she said after Cosby gave her a drink, she started to feel drowsing, but not completely passed out, as he attempted to assault her. But once she resisted, he threw her out of her house and into a taxi.

On Wednesday, Johnson was interviewed on Good Morning America to promote her memoir, The Face That Changed It All, and was asked what would she say to Cosby today.

Johnson, 62, answered, “I forgive you.”

Of the more than 40 women to accuse Cosby of drugging and assaulting them, Johnson is the first one to publicly forgive him. But she still hopes that other women who say they were victimized receive some sort of justice.

“I’m going to leave that to the Justice Department,” Johnson said in her GMA interview. “I just feel that he’s a lightning rod for a much bigger conversation, and that conversation would be the rape culture in America.”
