Months after Cosby’s guilty verdict, celebrities and members of a media reacted to his sentencing.

His survivors have been condemned to a lifetime of heartless memories and mishap for adventurous to exist in a initial place. Super satisfactory we guess,” she tweeted.

Many referenced Supreme Court hopeful Brett Kavanaugh and a #MeToo movement. 

“Today a PA probity deemed #BillCosby a Violent Sexual Predator (before) sentencing him. For decades people maligned decried his accusers as LIARS. It took 60+ accusers 2 finally move his survivors probity vindication. Have we schooled nothing?” tweeted Debra Messing, adding a hashtags #IBelieveDrFord and #IBelieveDeborahRamirez.

SiriusXM programming executive Zerlina Maxwell wrote: “Only 3 percent of rapists ever go to jail so this is a RARE MOMENT!”

“Look how many years, how many women, how many stories, how most justification it took to finally get 1 self-assurance of a absolute luminary in a #Metoo era,” tweeted author Wajahat Ali.

“The women who common their stories in a Cosby hearing and sentencing showed excellent bravery and strength. We are beholden that a probity accepted a earnest of Cosby’s crime and condemned him to prison. Let’s wish that a bequest of this box is that victims feel empowered to come forward, meaningful that it can truly make a disproportion in bringing perpetrators to justice,” pronounced Jodi Omear, vice boss of communications during RAINN, an anti-sexual assault organization.
