People - Larry Wilmore on Bill Cosby: How Many More Women Need to Come Forward?
This is really disturbing. I meant to post this the other day, but I didn’t get around to it.
Before Tuesday night’s show ( It was the second episode of the Nightly Show ) I had no idea so many women accused him of sexually assaulting them. This is especially shocking given the imagine surrounding Cosby as the ultimate gentlemen. As much as I may have admired the guy, I cannot believe all these women are lying, and if he is guilty, Cosby needs to pay for what he’s done, just like anyone else who did something like he’s accused of doing.

Larry Wilmore waited all of 24 hours before addressing one of the most polarizing figures in America right now: Bill Cosby.
The 52-year-old writer/commentator - who just started hosting Comedy Central’s The Nightly Show on Monday - used his second night on the job to take aim at the “hurricane of horrors” surrounding Cosby.
“Tonight, we’re talking Bill Cosby,” Wilmore announced at the start of the show. “We’ll ask the question, ‘Did he do it?’ The answer will be yes.”
Wilmore also explained why he decided to declare open season on the 77-year-old comedian, who’s been accused of sexually assaulting numerous women during the height of his popularity on TV.
