Lisa Bonet did NOT send a “cryptic tweet” about her “Cosby Show” co-star Bill Cosby, despite reports from outlets that don’t bother to fact check.

On Saturday and Sunday, numerous websites such as X17Online claimed Bonet became the “latest person to speak up” about Cosby’s alleged sex crimes when she “posted a telling tweet regarding her possible stance on the matter.” X17 and other disreputable places quoted Bonet as supposedly tweeting, “According to the karma of past actions, one’s destiny unfolds, even though everyone wants to be so lucky… Nothing stays in the dark 4ever!”

Like X17Online, HollywoodLife ran the tweet without checking whether the Twitter account, which wasn’t verified, actually belonged to Bonet. The webloid carelessly wondered if Bonet was “slamming her former onscreen dad” with her “very bold message,” going on to write, “Wow. The tweet certainly fits the disturbing situation, but it could be about something else entirely.” That’s some rock-solid journalism right there.

Let Gossip Cop tell you what others have not: Bonet did NOT send the tweet in question, and that is NOT her Twitter account. In fact, the impostor’s page has already been taken down. A rep for Bonet tells Gossip Cop, “I can assure you that is not her Twitter account and I have had the account suspended. Lisa does not have any social media accounts. She continues to have no comment on the subject.”

As Gossip Cop has reported, the only “Cosby Show” people to comment on the scandal so far have been Raven-Symone and the series’ producers. If and when other cast members say something, Gossip Cop will accurately report it.
