anon67 says I believe that it's almost involuntary to not expect it from him because most of us subconsciously think of him as the benevolent, good-hearted Dr. Huxtable that we grew up watching. Truth of the matter is that this is Bill Cosby, not Cliff. He could very well have committed those unthinkable crimes. I dismiss many of the allegations, but not all of them.

    I do have a very hard time believing these for a number of reasons. Cosby was about to get a new show on NBC. If anything can be seen from the Bryan Singer stuff a few months ago, people will target someone for money right when they're about to do something to get them back into the public eye. Secondly, the amount of people that are making these accusations is ridiculous. If he really did rape that many people, then how he got away with it is beyond me. Also, why would so many people come out and say these things long after the statute of limitations has passed on these? Lastly is more about the timing. Right now, racism is an incredibly hot buttoned issue in America. If someone's looking for a celebrity to get some money out of, an immensely popular and well known black entertainer would be exactly the type of person that people might use, but that's only if you want to get psychological. I'm not saying it's impossible for a few of them to be true, but there are just far too many for even a majority of them to be true.

    I just picked at random because I haven't read enough about it. Rape is a tricky thing to judge- it really often happens behind closed doors with no other witnesses. You don't want to let a rapist go scott free but you also don't want to punish someone who could be innocent. Tricky business

    i don't believe all of them are true. Like the model for example, i know she was smart enough not to take a random pill from him, thats just shady. I believe 20% of them are real, at most.

    I believe it's possible but I also believe in the power of lying ass b*tches. Besides, if it did happen, why'd they wait like 30 years or so to come forward?...

    There will always be jealous, hateful people in the world. He's been a beloved celebrity to many fans for decades. Same thing happened with Michael Jackson and those allegations proved to be wrong. Whenever someone is wealthy and making a decent living for themself, there's always someone determined to take that away for no reason....
