Beverly Johnson assesses the Bill Cosby case: “The truth is simple”

Beverly Johnson discussed the Bill Cosby trial.

The former model took to Twitter to express her thoughts on Wednesday’s trial.

“When it comes down to it, the truth is simple,” Johnson, 63, tweeted. “There is nothing we give to others that will not come back to us in some way.”

The comedian was accused of drugging and sexually assaulting former Temple University employee Andrea Constand in January 2004.

Cosby, 78, has not entered a plea but has consistently denied all allegations. He later posted $1 million bail and was ordered to surrender his passport.

Constand’s case is the first criminal charge brought against Cosby after more than 50 women accused him of sexual assault.

Johnson is among the many accused and even discussed the alleged incident in his memoir.

Earlier this month, Cosby added Johnson to a list of seven women he is suing for defamation. The news came in a statement posted on Twitter by her attorney, who said the lawsuit was filed against Johnson “due to her false, malicious, opportunistic and defamatory allegations that Mr. Cosby drugged her.”

The statement asked the actress to remove herself from the memoir about Cosby and to speak publicly about her comments about Cosby.

Johnson later responded to the lawsuit in a statement to PEOPLE.

“I know about Bill Cosby’s statements. In the case of rape and abuse, abusers will do anything to intimidate and weaken their victims in order to force the victims to stop fighting,” he said. “I ask for your support from all the victims. Thank you.”
