The conversation began on Monday November 19th as two women came forward with claims. Watch the clip below to catch up on the beginning of this on-going controversy:
Since that show another woman, well known former Super Model Janice Dickinson, has also alleged she was sexually assaulted by Cosby. As more women come forward more public backlash and misinformation is coming through media and social outliets like Twitter. The topic was very touchy and the ladies did not want to mince words. This was evidenced by Rosie Perez quickly clarifying her statements to Rosie O'Donnell. Rosie P. made it clear she is not making a comment as to whether or not Bill Cosby is guilty but that corporations are reacting to the allegations.
