13 women have accused him of rape from 1970 to now.  Thirteen.

Yes, I believe it.

I grew up listening to Bill Cosby. People out there like to make allegations to get $$$. Lets leave the man alone.

Not sure if I believe the allegations, but my issue is why these women would wait almost a decade to come forward. If I had an issue such as this, I would come forward almost immediately. May be they want a payoff.

Try 3 decades.

i havent heard this either but this is typical of companies if they find out strange things about people

Typical of companies if they find out strange things about people?  What does that mean?  It has been all over the news and the internet.  Not sure how anybody could have missed it.

And "rape" is not a "strange thing about someone".  I don't believe he done anything mostly because it's been so long.  I heard this morning that they have brought these allegations up in the past.  Nothing ever came of it.  IF a celebrity does actually do something like this then the public has a right to know because it could make a difference in if they wanted to purchase tickets to events or buy their stuff.

Personally, I try not to buy anything that is going to make these bazillionaires any richer than they already are.

WHY?  Just because a large number of people say you done something does not make it so.  He has money and they are looking for a pay out.  Nothing more.  IF it came out that he did do it NO it would not be a huge shock to me but I also know how people are.  Things like this happen all the time.  We are living in desperate times and people are wanting money and will do whatever to get it.  They don't care if they ruin somebody's life to get it.  It's like the people riding the welfare train.  You know, the ones too lazy to work.  They just think the world "owes" them an upkeep for life.

IF it is true.  But the thing is no matter what once something like this is started about you then it follows you for the rest of your life.  People don't remember that you were proven innocent.  Just that you were accused of some sex crime.  And if they hear it they assume it is true.

I have to disagree with you though.  IF he actually did do this - if you wait 30 years to say something you need to just keep your mouth shut.  Like I said before - he is old.  He may die soon.  They want some of his money.

Personally I don't believe these rumors. yet this is a serious charge and if it is, I feel for the women!!

I agree with that.  IF they are telling the truth then yes it is a bad thing and IF it is true being who he is and the influence and the people who have his DVDs have a right to know.  I just do not understand how that many women could be raped by the same man and NONE of them ever told anyone.

Well I heard that they were paid off NOT to tell. I just don't get though, why they are coming out now if they were paid to keep quiet....we shall see one day I guess.

I remember hearing allegations against him several years ago.  I think it is even more suspicious that he has paid women off in the past to keep quiet.
Have a wonderful day!

Sorry, I actually researched a bit before I commented.
This is not coming from "the ones too lazy to work."
Cosbys' predatory habits were well known, and covered up, by the industry he worked in.
