Cosby Accused of Rape by Many Women

Sexual-assault allegations against comedian Bill Cosby resurfaced this month.  The accusations have common threads, painting a picture of a man who allegedly used his power and influence in the entertainment industry to seek out vulnerable young women.

Some have said they were discouraged from going public because of Cosby’s fame, power, and reputation as “America’s dad.”

While Cosby has never been criminally charged with sexual assault, these accusations have recently hurt his career.  Netflix has indefinitely delayed the release of a Cosby stand-up special, NBC stopped development on a new sitcom starring Cosby, and TV Land is going to stop airing reruns of “The Cosby Show.”
