At first I was in the not sure camp. Janice Dickinson has zero credibility. But now that we're up to like, 20 accusers it seems to me I'm leaning into the "probably guilty" camp. When I mention this to people who believe he's innocent they respond with "why did the women wait so long to come forward?"
1. It's VERY hard for a woman to admit she's been raped, regardless of who the rapist is. There's significant amounts of shame, victim blaming, etc
2. You're talking about accusing a guy who everyone assumes is exactly like his beloved tv persona, who is going to believe one woman coming forward?
If you look at some tv celebs, oftentimes they are complete opposites of their characters. Sherman Helmsley played a loud-mouthed obnoxious guy (George Jefferson) but in real life is very shy, quiet and timid. Bob Sagget on Full House was the lovable Dad, but in real life he's a complete dick who swears every other sentence for shock value (because he just isn't funny and that's the only way to get attention)
Two actors that are complete polar opposites of their tv personas. So I can definitely see Cosby being the same here. There's too much smoke now for there not to be a fire
