Last year, a Twitter user pretending to be Lisa Bonet posted a cryptic tweet bashing Bill Cosby. Her manager was quick to point out that the actress hasn't spoken on the matter, and that she doesn't have any social media accounts.
Now, the beauty still hasn't spoken directly about the controversy, but her sentiments on the subject are being shared my a much more trustworthy source — her daughter.

Zoë Kravitz recently opened up about her mother's feelings about the sexual assault allegations surrounding her Cosby Show co-star, saying:
"She's just as disgusted and concerned as everyone else is, but I don't think she has any insight. It's news to her as well."
The Mad Max: Fury Road actress says Lenny Kravitz' ex-wife hasn't talked about the scandal because she's trying to avoid all the drama, admitting that she and her mother haven't discussed it:
"She hasn't, she really hasn't. She'd plead the fifth, even to me. I think she's just staying out of it."
The 26-year-old isn't naïve. She knows that people contemplate whether or not Lisa could be joining the 40+ women who have accused the comedian of sexual assault:
"She was on the show for a long time. She's also a beautiful woman. It makes people wonder."
But Zoë is confident that if her mom knew anything about the allegations, she wouldn't be staying silent about the controversy, adding:
"She's a very straightforward person. If there was something she felt the world needed to know that would help this case or help any women who had been abused, she would say something."
Lisa starred as Bill's daughter, Denise Huxtable, on the popular program for about seven years. Recently, Eden Tirl — who had appeared on The Cosby Show — came forward as one of his alleged victims.
