Update: Bill Cosby Sex Assault Conviction Overturned By The Supreme Court

Bill Cosby’s Hollywood peers, from Cosby Show cast mates to rappers, are reacting to Pennsylvania Supreme Court overturning his sex assault conviction on Wednesday (June 30).

The 83-year-old served more than two years of a three- to 10-year sentence at a state prison near Philadelphia, where he has since been released. Cosby was convicted in 2018 of drugging and sexually assaulting Andrea Constand, a former basketball player and Temple University employee, at his suburban home in 2004. Cosby was the one of the very first celebrities tried and convicted following the #MeToo movement.

Phylicia Rashad, Cosby’s co-star who played his on-screen wife Clair Huxtable on The Cosby Show from 1984 to 1992, celebrated the news. “FINALLY!!!! A terrible wrong is being righted- a miscarriage of justice is corrected!” she tweeted.
