Bill Cosby and Sexual Abuse Allegations

By  |  1 Comment

Comedian and activist Bill Cosby, rumor has it that he has sexually abused a young woman. Bill Cosby brings you his comedic style, his fatherly advice and warm smile. The Cosby Show was a hit in the ’80s and early ’90s the sitcom that also revolutionized television in its portrayal of an upper middle class black family. But the idea of 76-year-old Cosby returning to television has brought of sexual allegations against him. In 2006, Bill Cosby settled a lawsuit with a woman who claimed that he had drugged and raped her in 2004. Thirteen women who said they had similar stories, none of whom planned to sue him, agreed to testify had the lawsuit gone to trial. Since Bill Cosby chose to settle, it never did.

Tamara Green, one of 13 women who accused Bill Cosby of drugging and sexually assaulting them in a civil lawsuit in 2004, settled under undisclosed terms in 2006. Now, a second woman is speaking out, reports claim Barbara Bowman, a 46-year-old artist who says Bill Cosby took her under his wing in the late ‘80s, when she was a teenager and repeatedly emotionally and physically abused her. Both women joined the 2004 lawsuit as witnesses after hearing about it on television neither had anything to gain financially, as the statute of limitations had expired for both of them.

Wow, Bill Cosby a rapist, he is a black man I always looked up to growing up. The Cosby Show was one of the best shows on television. What must his wife think about this. This is absolutely crazy and we as viewers or as fans have no idea what goes on behind closed doors. By him settling these cases, it has to be true and I am disappointed in this black man who I looked up to.

    Some cases are settled due to the damage of negative press, not always because the accused is guilty… #IJS
