The iconic model took to Twitter to share her thoughts following Wednesday's court proceedings.

"When it comes down to it, truth is simple," Johnson, 63, tweeted. "There is nothing that we give to others that does not come back to us in some shape or form."

On Wednesday, the famed comedian, 78, appeared in court, where he was charged with aggravated indecent assault stemming from an alleged 2004 incident in Pennsylvania, according to prosecutors and court documents. He was released on $1 million bail and is set to appear in court on Jan. 14. His attorney Monique Pressley called the charge "unjustified" and told ABC News, "We expect that Mr. Cosby will be exonerated by a court of law."

Earlier this month, Cosby filed suit against Johnson for defamation, saying in a statement that "he never drugged defendant and her story is a lie."

In November of 2014, in a first-person essay for Vanity Fair, the model accused the comedian of drugging her in the mid-'80s but said she didn't believe she was raped. She later told ABC News, "I knew that I was in danger, I knew that this was not a recreational drug of any kind, it was...I was really afraid, I was afraid for my life."

She also included the alleged incident in a chapter in her memoir.

In his lawsuit, Cosby is asking for compensatory and punitive damages, a retraction of Johnson's statements and removal of the chapter from her memoir.

Johnson responded to the comments in a statement to People Magazine.

"I am aware of the statements from Bill Cosby. In cases of rape and abuse, abusers will do whatever they can to intimidate and weaken their victims to force them to stop fighting," she said. "I ask for your support of all of the victims involved. Thank you.”
