When asked about Lohan and her inability to stay out of the media spotlight, Cosby remarks “Stop taking advantage of this woman. Stop putting her on TV…and laughing at someone who obviously needs help.”

Cosby, who has spent much of his career working with child actors, also commented on the recent death of Diff’rent Strokes star, Gary Coleman.

Cosby refers to Coleman as someone who led a “confusing” life, marred with “physical health problems”.

He goes on to say that “it’s tough handling those things when under a microscope.”
