2 Bill Cosby William Henry "Bill" Cosby, Jr., is an American stand-up comedian, actor, and author. more.

Comedian and rapist. - Skullkid755

Dude he didn't do it those cases are from the 80s and if he did that in the 80s then the woman would have said something then but no they wait 30 years then file charges because they want money. So if u think about it he didn't do really do it in my opinion. But hey, if I'm wrong I'm wrong. that's just my opinion, but we'll have an answer from the judge.

Yep found guilty as well, Or should say most likely will be found guilty. - htoutlaws2012

No one's going to remember Cosby after what happened. NO ONE. Thank god.

In John’s defense, he was just troubled, he even acknowledged it was bad in a Beatles song. He had a troubled childhood, he was not a bad person, nor a great person. A troubled person, I hope he rests in peace, and may Cynthia also Rest In Peace. - TopTenTed

As someone who actually likes John's songs, I still must say this is true, John was no angel. He didn't just beat his wife, he cheated on Cynthia a lot of times, he also I read once groped some random woman in the street, and once upset someone's German girlfriend by blaming her parents for the Holocaust. Yeah...real smooth there, John. - SailorSedna

Maybe that's why they're called The Beatles, because John Lennon used to beat his wife
