Stars Speak Out As Bill Cosby Is Set Free Following His Conviction Being Overturned

Following the Pennsylvania Supreme Court's decision to overturn Bill Cosby's sexual assault conviction and free him, many of Hollywood's biggest names have spoken out in both support and opposition to the decision.

Cosby was serving a three- to ten-year sentence for “drugging and violating Temple University sports administrator Andrea Constand at his suburban Philadelphia home in 2004,” according to the Associated Press.

The 83-year-old was one of the first celebrities to be tried and convicted in the Me Too era, with 60 accusers accusing him of sexual misconduct, including drugging and rape.

Celebrities like Amber Tamblyn slammed the justice system in response to the news that Cosby would be released from prison, while former "Cosby Show" co-star Phylicia Rashad praised the decision, tweeting, "A terrible wrong is being righted."

I don't want to hear about how cancel culture ruined men's lives during the MeToo era reckoning for women and survivors. How we went too far. Today's news that Cosby's conviction is being overturned is proof that we haven't gone far enough. Our justice system MUST change. — Amber Tamblyn (@ambertamblyn) June 30, 2021

FINALLY!!! A terrible wrong has been righted- a miscarriage of justice has been corrected! pic.twitter.com/NrGUdwr23c — Phylicia Rashad (@PhyliciaRashad) June 30, 2021

I'm curious how many people are lining up to make deals with Bill Cosby. Too many people in Hollywood protect predator rapists and pretend to care about survivors when they really don't. — rosanna arquette (@RoArquette) June 30, 2021

I am outraged, heartbroken, and disgusted by Cosby's release, and I can only imagine how his survivors must be feeling. This convicted rapist is free today because he is a man of privilege. The patriarchy rears its ugly head once more. — Christine Lahti (@ChristineALahti) June 30, 2021

How can the Supreme Court overturn a conviction based on a factual occurrence? Oh, excuse me, if you are male and have enough money and influence, you can even be President regardless of how corrupt you are. Bill Cosby is just one of many. Look at Marilyn Manson! — Stella Parton (@StellaParton) June 30, 2021

This is why women don't speak up.https://t.co/6WXe4UmWXtE. Jean Carroll (@ejeancarroll) June 30, 2021
