Phylicia later backtracked on her statements, saying, "I fully support survivors of sexual assault coming forward."

But Aunt Viv isn't having it and took to her own social media to slam Clair Huxtable.

Several fans turned on her and questioned whether she was fit to take the role of dean at Howard University College of Fine Arts.

Radar has learned that today is Rashad's first day on the job, and the university is sticking beside her.

"Survivors of sexual assault will always be our priority. While Dean Rashad has acknowledged in her follow-up tweet that victims must be heard and believed, her initial tweet lacked sensitivity towards survivors of sexual assault," their statement read.

“We will continue to advocate for survivors fully and support their right to be heard,” the university continued. “Howard will stand with survivors and challenge systems that would deny them justice. We have full confidence that our faculty and school leadership will live up to this sacred commitment.”

Rashad's mug isn't on the dean directory, but Radar is told the site is being updated soon and she will be included.
