2016 Has its First Official Contoversial Magazine Cover, Starring Bill Cosby

Just when we thought this cover from Ebony Magazine was the most shocking Bill Cosby magazine cover in 2015, the New York daily News has topped that fast-growing chart which is Bill Cosby’ list of unflattering appearances.

This cover features his mug shot after being arrested and the “she said” account of over 55 women – is causing quite a lot of controversy.

Bill Cosby

According to the paper,

More than two decades and 60 accusers after women first called Bill Cosby a rapist and sex abuser, a prosecutor will try to prove beyond a reasonable doubt the crimes of which the fallen icon has long since been convicted in the court of public opinion.

Cosby, who has denied criminality to the point of suing some accusers, should welcome his arrest as the opportunity to finally clear his name. That is what he wants, is it not?When he stands before judge and jury, Cosby will be presumed innocent — an enormous gift to a rich and powerful man who has spent years intimidating women into silence.

Until now, Cosby’s resources had secured for him the invaluable prize of time: He had bought his way past numerous statutes of limitations, but not the 12-year clock set by the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, where Andrea Constand alleged that Cosby drugged and assaulted her in 2004 in his suburban Philadelphia home.

The local attorney declined to bring charges then. Constand sued Cosby, and he paid a settlement after her lawyers questioned him extensively under oath in a deposition that was long sealed.

There, while maintaining their relationship was consensual, he acknowledged giving Constand some drugs and engaging in sexual activity. Her version involved incapacitation. She says she took pills along with wine, then felt “paralyzed” as he violated her.

In announcing the charges against America’s Dad turned America’s Predatory Step Uncle, prosecutor Kevin Steele cited Cosby’s unsealed testimony, new evidence and the matching stories of so many other women.

“A person in that state cannot give consent” to engaging in sex, Steele said, perhaps signaling how he intends to win the he said-she said contest about an interaction so long ago between just two people, when all the world knows that with the toll of Cosby’s alleged victims standing at more like 60, the weight of the evidence is actually he said-she said, she said, she said, she said, she said, she said, she said, she said, she said, she said, she said, she said, she said, she said, she said, she said, she said, she said, she said, she said, she said, she said, she said, she said, she said, she said, she said, she said, she said, she said, she said, she said, she said, she said, she said, she said, she said, she said, she said, she said, she said, she said, she said, she said, she said, she said, she said, she said, she said.

Shocking isn’t it?
