Bill Cosby Calls Weinstein Verdict a “Sad Day” for the Judicial System
Bill Cosby has released a statement following Harvey Weinstein’s guilty verdict. He speaks through his publicist, Bill Wyatt, in support of Weinstein.
Wyatt bashed the system itself, along with the #MeToo movement, while appearing to suggest that Weinstein’s either innocent or received an unfair trial.
“This is not shocking because these jurors were not sequestered, which gave them access to media coverage and the sentiments of public opinion,” reps wrote in an Instagram post. “Here’s the question that should haunt all Americans, especially wealthy and famous men…Where do we go in this country to find fairness and impartiality in the judicial system; and where do we go in this country to find Due Process?”
Harvey Weinstein was found guilty of third-degree rape and criminal sexual assault.
Are y’all satisfied with today’s guilty verdict?
