Bill Cosby’s daughter Evin Cosby released a statement to Access Hollywood Tuesday regarding the recent allegations against her father made by women who claim the comedian sexually assaulted them.

“He is the FATHER you thought you knew,” Evin’s statement reads. “The Cosby Show was my today’s tv reality show. Thank you. That’s all I would like to say :)”

Evin has also been outspoken about the accusations on her personal Facebook page, where she wrote Monday, “Rape is a serious allegation and it is suppose to be taken VERY seriously but so is Falsely accusing someone.”

She went on to say that people who “wrongly” accuse “an innocent victim” should go to prison. “They are not ONLY destroying innocent people’s life they are ALSO making it hard for the MEN and Women to find justice when they have been raped.”

Evin’s statement comes just a day after Bill’s wife, Camille Cosby, released her own statement claiming what she’s seen in the media about her husband as of late “is the portrait of a man I do not know.”

“There appears to be no vetting of my husband’s accusers before stories are published or aired,” she said. “An accusation is published and immediately goes viral.”

Bill himself has also accused the media of bad practices: In November, he told Florida Today that “people should fact check.”
