Ooooh, this is gonna make Donald Trump so angry... which means it's a good thing!!
And boy, are they ever!!
Jill, who was presented with her honorary doctorate degree from Temple University by Cosby earlier this year, launched a series of tweets accusing the alleged victims AND the media of attempting to destroy the 77-year-old's "magnificent" legacy.
Scott challenged the actor's critics by arguing that there's no actual proof substantiating the rape allegations, and she also insinuated that his work for the "greater good" should trump whatever scandal he's currently embroiled in.
"I've learned not to believe too much without proof. Especially about someone whose done so much for our greater good."
Well, as one might expect, Jill's social share sparked A LOT of outrage and arguments with fellow followers.
In response to one Cosby detractor, she fired back:
"U know Bill Cosby? I do child and this is insane. Proof. Period."
Hmm, we have a feeling the women who've accused the comedian may disagree.
Although Scott may have incited the most wrath from Twitter users when she tweeted:
Rape is a despicable, cowardly crime. If you've been raped- plz do NOT shower, go to police IMMEDIATELY, have a rap kit done. GET EVIDENCE.

It's EXTREMELY hard for some rape victims to come forward for MULTIPLE reasons, including social stigma and fear of reprisal.
While the actress is free to voice her opinions, we think she should educate herself a little further on what a victim goes through after they've been raped.
