Celebrities respond to Bill Cosby case mistrial

Recently Bill Cosby got a mistrial after the jury couldn’t come to a verdict about the sexual charges he was facing. Following this headline news, celebrities all over the country took to Twitter to express their opinion about the situation.

Lena Dunham, the star of “Girls” was one of the most outspoken. “Bill Cosby’s trial is about much more than Bill Cosby. When women see justice served, their own fear & trauma are eased,” she tweeted.

“When they don’t, survivors of sexual assault have to watch every day as the legal system calls them liars and denies their truth,” Dunham added. “It’s an unimaginable grind. My heart is with every survivor reliving the erasure of their own experience today.”

One judge proclaimed a mistrial after the jury deadlocked in Cosby’s case for the sexual attack charges of Andrea Constand in 2004.

She was just one of the tens of women who blamed Bill for sexual assaulting them in a period of 10 years, but hers is the sole case to develop into a full criminal trial.

Dunham’s associate, filmmaker Richard Shepard, posted a picture on Twitter of the New York Magazine cover featuring some of Cosby’s alleged victims.

Comedian D.L. Hughley tweeted: “A jury deliberated longer in the #Cosby Case! Than the murder of #PhilandoCastile!”

Guilty or not, this trial will be a dark cloud over Bill Cosby’s whole career forever. #JustHowItGoesForSomeFolk

As stories developed into a potential retrial for Bill, “Silicon Valley” actor Kumail Nanjiani asked whether there could be a jury that is impartial of Cosby’s fame.

“Serious question: How will Cosby ever get an unbiased jury,”Kumail tweeted. “Who doesn’t know him or have some sort of association with him?”
