"YES!!! Thank you to (at)ConstandAndrea and all the brave survivors (over 60 of them!) for standing up to a man who used to be extremely powerful. Now he will sit in prison where he belongs." -- Kathy Griffin on Twitter.
"I have re-occurring nightmares, I wake up in fear, I fear the dark.... Therapy has helped some but it has not helped to restore my innocence. I was never the same. I will never be the same." -- Model and TV personality Janice Dickinson, a Cosby accuser, from a statement she released after she was unable to read it in court.
"By most/all accounts (hash)BillCosby was a sexual predator who left a trail of human misery & despair -- Sentenced to 3-10 in state pen, he had it coming. Still -- as an attorney -- I predict his conviction will be overturned. Judge went way over the line in allowing unrelated victim testimony." -- Geraldo Rivera, via Twitter.
"Bill Cosby has been sentenced to 3-10 years for drugging and sexually assaulting many women over the course of many years. His survivors have been sentenced to a lifetime of brutal memories and trauma for daring to exist in the first place. Super fair I guess." -- Amber Tamblyn, on Twitter.
