Refresh for updates… Waiting to Exhale author Terry McMillan was one of the first celebrities to respond to the news that Bill Cosby has been found guilty of sexual assault, and if her tweet is any indication, few will shed tears for the defeated comedian.
“Hallelujah,” McMillan tweeted. “It’s about damn time…And I hope Stormy wins and all the other women break those NDA’s so all of these bastards fall down.
See all tweets below.
With Bill Cosby’s guilty verdict I hope these women find some peace and that all those who have not been able to find justice in other instances with other men have hope that they too will be heard. Zero tolerance of sexual harassment. #TimesUp https://t.co/5MHTsbp2Bz

Heard a man on tv reminiscing about the Cosby of old, & expressing bewilderment over the duality of such a revered paternal figure also being a predator & rapist. Yep. You’re starting to get the point, buddy.

Just because you're rich and powerful doesn't mean another person’s body is automatically available for sex. Consent must be given.#BillCosby

Cosby is guilty. I’m sorry if you loved a lie. His victims can now exhale. Thank you judge and jury. Thank you society for waking up.

I wonder how long it’s going to take Trump to announce he’s going to pardon Bill Cosby.

I hope Eddie Murphy reaches out and scolds him for using "blue" words in his set. https://t.co/VvwI2AkEet

Time’s up, Bill. Time’s BEEN up for you, for years. And now justice. Justice for women I know who you’ve hurt and those I’ve never met. Good riddance. https://t.co/aJ0YaVhwyA

The Cosby conviction is a resonant reminder that power and influence come with significant responsibility, and must never, ever be abused in an evolved society. Hopefully this is only the first step forward.

I took down the picture of Bill Cosby because I didn’t want to see his face on my timeline.

More importantly, I haven't forgotten about the many women you assaulted and silenced with your power. Good riddance!!! https://t.co/PY4Dl0t1YS

Bill Cosby going down epic. Finally a conviction. Finally justice.

The state of America is this- Even with dozens of accusers we were all afraid Bill Cosby would walk.

Funny how the frail Bill Cosby who wobbled into the courthouse today was hauling ass out after his guilty plea like his ass was en fuego.
— Paula Pell (@perlapell) April 26, 2018
Bill Cosby free on bail, not remanded.
It doesn't matter.
He's a convicted sex offender now.
And today the victims got justice.
And no one can take that away from them.

In a fitting end to Sexual Assault Awareness month, Bill Cosby was found guilty today. Thinking of all the women he traumatized over the past 50 years. As a survivor myself, I know that pain never fully goes away. But I hope that his victims finally feel some semblance of peace.

Bill Cosby Found Guilty of Sexual Assault After Years of Accusations https://t.co/TKRBKN5Frb Hallelujah. It's about damn time. #FinallyHimToo And I hope Stormy wins and all the other women break those NDA's so all of these bastards fall down.

Bill Cosby found guilty on all counts.

#BillCosby guilty & facing spending the rest of his natural life behind bars- that is IF convictions can withstand certain appeal based on trail judge’s allowance of five additional alleged victims testimony to buttress the complaining witness.
Hannibal Burress changed history.

How about – in the future, in cases like Bill Cosby or Weinstein, these women don't have to devote 15 to 20 years of their lives, fighting to get justice, while being degraded the entire time?
