Singer and actress Jill Scott is not rushing to judge Bill Cosby after more than 19 women have come forward to claim the comedian took advantage of them, sexually assaulted them, and even raped them in some cases.

The Philadelphia native, who recently starred alongside Chadwick Boseman in James Brown biopic “Get on Up,” spent Monday encouraging her Twitter followers to resist “condemnation without proof.”

“I’m not dismissing. I’m just not quick to jump at the bit,” Scott stressed. “Sides with Mr. Cosby? No. I side with substantiated proof when media/society is attempting to destroy a magnificent Legacy.”

Although a number of her followers were not happy with her opinion on the matter, Scott did not apologize for her views. Instead, she offered to “agree to disagree,” and advised women to “get evidence” when sexually assaulted.

“Rape is a despicable, cowardly crime,” Scott tweeted. “If you’ve been raped- plz do NOT shower, go to police IMMEDIATELY, have a rap kit done. GET EVIDENCE. “

Here are all of Scott’s thoughts on the Cosby sex scandal:
