Playing Whoopi Goldberg Defends Bill Cosby After Quaaludes Admission: 'He's Innocent Until Proven Guilty'

Whoopi Goldberg is once again defending Bill Cosby.

On Tuesday's episode of The View, the conversation turned to the latest news regarding the 77-year-old comedian and the sexual misconduct accusations against him by more than two dozen women. According to court documents obtained by ET on Monday, Cosby admitted in 2005 that he obtained Quaaludes to give to "young women" that he "wanted to have sex with."

Despite this new evidence, Goldberg is still standing by her friend. "The ‘80s, they weren’t fun for everybody, clearly," the 59-year-old actress said when View guest host Candace Cameron Bure asked for clarifications about Quaaludes.

"We’ll see what happens. As more information comes out, people can make judgments. I don’t like snap judgments because I’ve had snap judgments made on me so I’m very, very careful," she continued. "Save your texts, save your nasty comments, I don’t care. And I say this because this is my opinion and in America, still -- I know it’s a shock -- we’re actually innocent until proven guilty. He has not been proven."

Raven-Symone also took the opportunity to speak out about her former Cosby Show co-star for the first time since joining The View.

"You know I don’t really like to talk about it that much because he’s the reason I’m on this panel," the former Disney Channel star explained to the panel which consisted of Goldberg, Nicole Wallace, and guest hosts Michelle Collins and Bure.

"He gave me my first job, but at the same time, you need the proof, and then I’ll be able to give my judgment here or there," Symone said.

Wallace interjected, "And we know that he gave [drugs] to [a woman]to have sex." To which Symone added, "And now there’s real facts."

In the 2005 court documents, which were released at the request of the Associated Press and cite excerpts from the deposition, Cosby’s lawyers try and deflect most of the questioning in their client’s testimony, though one inquiry leads Cosby to a clear admission.

"When you got the Quaaludes, was it in your mind that you were going to use these Quaaludes for young women that you wanted to have sex with?" asks the plaintiff’s attorney, who is questioning Cosby.

Cosby answers simply, "Yes."
