Disgraced TV icon Bill Cosby needs no introductions as he became one of the most controversial and hated figures in history after he was accused of drugging and assaulting more than 60 women in the past few decades. He was also released from prison back in June after his conviction was overturned due to a technicality. The Comedy Cellar still doesn’t want to have anything to do with him.
One of Cosby’s accusers, Andrea Constand, finally decided to speak up on Bill Cosby’s release from prison. Constand was responsible for getting Cosby behind bars in the first place.
While speaking to NBC News, Constand revealed that she “was really shocked — disappointed” about Cosby being freed from prison after the Pennsylvania Supreme Court overturned his 2018 conviction on a technicality. He was convicted of assaulting Constand in 2004.
Cosby was initially sentenced to three to 10 years in jail and was serving time at Pennsylvania’s State Correctional Institution at Phoenix. Despite all the allegations meted against him, Cosby always maintained that they engaged in consensual relations.
“I have come way too far to go back to that place to wonder whether it’s all worth it or to have regrets. It was worth it. It was worth it.”
The 83-year-old comedian might be free from jail but he will forever be remembered as one of the most despicable men in television history and that is unlikely to change anytime soon.
