“My comments were in no way directed at survivors of sexual assault. I am vehemently opposed to sexual violence, I find no excuse for such behavior and I know that Howard University has a zero tolerance policy towards interpersonal violence, ”Rashad wrote.
On Wednesday, the day Cosby was released, Rashad tweeted: “FINALLY !!! A terrible mistake is being corrected, a judicial error is being corrected! Along with a photo of Cosby. He has since deleted the tweet.
Rashad said in his letter that he plans to “engage in active listening and participate in trainings not only to reinforce the University’s protocol and conduct, but also to learn how I can become a stronger ally for survivors of sexual assault and all those who have suffered at the hands of an abuser. “
