With the unfortunate black cloud floating over Bill Cosby’s legacy, it has some people thinking the same fate for his beloved Cosby Show. Keisha Knight Pullman who played Rudy Huxtable on the series has now commented on the show’s impact and shares that despite allegations, The Cosby Show’s impact can’t be denied. In an interview with The Grio, Keisha went on to defend the show.
Do you feel that the Cosby Show‘s legacy has been irreparably tarnished over the past year?
I hope that it hasn’t. I can say that, based upon the people that continuously approach me and talk about how it’s profoundly impacted their lives, I don’t feel you can take that back. You can’t take back the impact that it’s had on generations of kids, and it’s continuing to have such a positive impact on them. So I feel like the place that it has in people’s hearts is such a nostalgic part of childhood and beyond, it’s going to be difficult to take back those memories.
