i mean, it's a really tough situation because of the fact that so much of it relies on all of these women's testimonies. a lot of these crimes were allegedly committed decades ago, so they pretty much can't conduct a full-scale criminal investigation for evidence since it doesn't really exist at this point anymore.
it's very hard to turn and say 20+ women unrelated to each other, ages 40-70 are all wrong and conniving to get a piece of the Cosby estate...the people that are insinuating that seem like they're a bit too hopeful for Cosby's public image instead of focusing on these poor victims.
i'm not too big on a lot of the PC bullshit, but i do see things like victim blaming, whether intentional or not, definitely entering into the public sphere when things like this break. i mean, sure, there are scheming gold diggers out there -- we all know it. but like ten of these women have specifically stated that they have no intentions of pursuing any civil suits whatsoever, that they just want to side with the other victims and explain their experience to counteract the people who still can't believe something like this could happen.
if you hear some of the stories, they're eerily candid -- i find it very hard to believe that not only are all these girls manipulating the system, but are also the most adept spin doctors this decade to dupe the public into believing straight up lies. at the very least Cosby's a fucking creep, sorry but there's like 20+ stories of girls being drugged by him under the auspices that he was helping them -- that's fucking next-level sick shit if it is indeed true. people say to wait until he has his day in court, but in this particular case i don't feel like he's unfairly being dragged through the mud.
the fact that he refuses to even acknowledge it speaks volumes. did you guys see that AP interview where he basically tried turning it around back on the reporter and acting like the AP has no integrity for addressing MULTIPLE PUBLIC RAPE ACCUSATIONS?
as if anyone at that point still gave a shit about his exhibition on African Art (which, btw, looks like an amazing show to see in person)...idk though, that many people can't be wrong. Michael Jackson didn't even get heat like this, and he's worth way more than Cosby and more well-known i'd argue.
