Family unit. The day after Camille Cosby released a statement defending her husband Bill Cosby, the legendary comedian's daughter Evin did the same on Tuesday, Dec. 16.

"He is the FATHER you thought you knew. The Cosby Show was my today's tv reality show. Thank you. That's all I would like to say :)," the 38-year-old told Access Hollywood in an exclusive statement.

Evin also took to her Facebook on Monday to express support for her family. "Go Mom!!" the Hollywood scion wrote alongside a screengrab of trending Twitter topics. "Trending!"

Cosby's wife became a trending topic on the social media platform after she released a statement of strong support for her husband despite recent allegations. "I met my husband, Bill Cosby, in 1963, and we were married in 1964," the statement read. "The man I met, and fell in love with, and whom I continue to love, is the man you all knew through his work. He is a kind man, a generous man, a funny man, and a wonderful husband, father and friend. He is the man you thought you knew."

Evin also took to her public Facebook page on Monday, Dec. 15, to address claims made against her father. "Rape is a serious allegation and it is suppose to be taken VERY seriously but so is Falsely accusing someone," she wrote. "When someone rapes a person they go to prison. THAT should also happen to the person that has wrongfully accused an innocent victim. 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."

Their words come after more than 20 women, including '80s supermodels Beverly Johnson and Janice Dickinson, have come forward publicly accusing the comedian of drugging them in the past.

Evin, personally, expressed skepticism about the women and their recollections from the alleged incidents. "Drugged- you can remember the whole damn day but you were drugged? Just sayin," she wrote in another post. "Memory- you can remember you looked at (allegedly) eachother, people were starring allegedly remembering your home address allegedly the name you called him allegedly But you were allegedly drugged."

Evin also used her Facebook to thank those who've stood by her father as he's currently embroiled in scandal. "I would like to thank EVERYONE that has been sharing, voicing and putting their beautiful positive energy out there for me and my family," she wrote on the site.

"There will always be jealous, vengeful and crazy people out there to break anyone down. Everyday we wake up and appreciate the love and support from everyone. There's more positive in life then we think. It's the BS that can be overwhelming. We keep fighting each day. The challenges in life can only make us stronger. The ones that are angry can't live as easy as the ones that can love, RESPECT and not to find the easy way out by making FALSE accusations. It's a shame how some people sit behind the computer waiting for bad things to happen to someone. Isn't it easier to be happy? And to want the best for someone that has done such great things in life? It could be a friend, a family or a pet…. Just be HAPPY! It's waaaaay easier. Thank you again!," she continued. "Thank you Jill Scott and Faizon Love!! I would also like say THANK YOU for the all the other intelligent people that know what this is! We are standing strong! Xoxo- Evin."
