Stars React To Bill Cosby Sexual Assault Charge And Arrest – See Celebrity Reactions
Bill Cosby was charged and booked on Wednesday for aggravated indecent assault, and now stars are reacting to the news. The comedian’s arrest stemmed from a January 2004 incident in which he allegedly drugged and sexually assaulted former Temple University employee Andrea Constand at his Pennsylvania home. See celebrity reactions on Twitter and Facebook below.
Judd Aaptow, arguably Cosby’s most vocal detractor, tweeted, “Bill Cosby has spent his life attempting to silence the women he has assaulted with threats, lawsuits and money. He went on, “Hopefully now many of these women will get to tell their stories in a court of law and the people who supported him will get deposed.” Gabrielle Union noted, “As a victim/survivor of violence I can tell u tht it can easily happen 2 any1.” She also revealed, “I was at work when I was raped. Ppl still asked what i had on.”
“Grateful that Bill Cosby’s criminal record will be marked forever, like the lives of the women he raped. They deserve justice and peace,” wrote Lena Dunham. She added, “If I believed in hell Bill Cosby would be going there.” With a pointed reference to her own past, Mia Farrow asked, “What’s this about Bill Cosby and Woody Allen?” Son Ronan posted, “So happy to live in a society where all it takes to get the legal system moving against powerful men is testimony from more than 50 women.”
George Takei expressed on Facebook, “With so many women having come forward, perhaps there at last will be some justice.” After Cosby was taken in to custody and booked, an incredulous Arsenio Hall tweeted, “When I was a kid, and you heard the word ‘Cosby’ and ‘booking’ … it was in reference to him doing stand up in Cleveland. #smh #speechless.” And Joshua Malina wrote, “Happy holidays, @billcosby. May the new year bring you all that you deserve.”
Patton Oswald didn’t mince words when he tweeted, “Was gonna Tweet something about Bill Cosby & immediately got tired. He’s sunk below cheap shots. He needs to never have existed.” And Debra Messing simply wrote, “FINALLY. Justice WILL be done.” Tell us what YOU think in the comments below.
