Once America's favourite Dad Bill Cosby's name and image has been tarnished by the growing number of women who have come out and declared that they were raped by him. Finally, 35 of them have come together to reveal how the beloved star seduced and raped each one of them.
Young actresses and models who wanted to make it big in the industry were sweet-talked into spending some time with him, when he drugged them and had his way with them; all stories had the same ring to it.
All these women had narrated their ordeal individually, but one look at the powerful New York Magazine photo-shoot and you will be hit by the gravity of the crime that Bill Cosby committed against these women.
From waitresses, to actresses to Playboy bunnies, the one thing that is common is they were all allegedly drugged and raped by the then-beloved star Cosby.
To those who ask why these women – now accusing Bill Cosby of such a grave crime, didn't take it to the police earlier – Tarama Green, a retired attorney, says: "Andrea Constand went to the police in 2005 — how'd it work out for her? Not at all. In 2005, Bill Cosby still had control of the media.... 'In 2015, we have social media. We can't be disappeared. It's online and can never go away."
Recently a 2005 court record from Cosby's crimes was dug up by The New York Times, in which "The Coasby Show" star admitted to seducing young women and using Quaalude pills to sedate them before having sex with them.
"I went into this thinking he was going to be my father. To wake up half-dressed and raped by the man that said he was going to love me like a father? That's pretty sick," accuser Barbara Bowman said in the tell-all photo-shoot.
Although the truth is pretty clear, many stars such as Whoopi Goldberg had taken Cosby's side, saying there is no substantial proof to back the women's claims. However, here is an image that is more powerful than anything we have heard or seen in the matter.
