Paul Stanley Reacts To The Court Decision Overturning Bill Cosby’s Sex Assault Conviction
Paul Stanley targetted the court’s decision of reversing Bill Cosby’s conviction due to sexually assaulting more than 50 women for years. Paul also showed his support for the victims and their families by reacting the Cosby’s co-star Phylicia Rashad who described Bill’s returning home as the correct decision on Twitter.
‘The Cosby Show’ star Bill Cosby’s image of a lovely father and husband was shattered after more than 50 women accused him of sexual assault and claimed that he gave them drugs to rape them easily. Crosby was found guilty and got arrested, which became the milestone success of the ‘MeToo’ movement followed by Harvey Weinstein’s conviction.
Recently on June 30, 2021, Bill Cosby’s sexual assault conviction was overturned and he got out of prison after only two years. Both the victims and their supporters heavily criticized this controversial decision of the court, especially through their social media accounts. According to them, this decision will be the reason behind other victims’ not saying ‘me too.’
Paul Stanley also showed his support for the victims by reacting to Phylicia Rashad’s supportive tweet about the decision regarding Cosby’s release. In her tweet, Rashad reflected on the decision by saying that ‘a terrible wrong is being righted– a miscarriage of justice is corrected.’ Her tweet received backlash from many people on social media, including Paul Stanley.
KISS frontman responded to Rashad’s tweet emphasizing that being a friend of a rapist shouldn’t change the fact that he drugged and raped many women who won’t be able to move on with their lives after that incident. According to Paul, no one shouldn’t feel sympathy for Cosby after all those women came forward and revealed what he had done to them. In another one of his tweets, Stanley highlighted that the victims were assaulted again after the court’s decision setting Cosby free.
Phylicia Rashad’s tweet read as follows:
“Finally! A terrible wrong is being righted- a miscarriage of justice is corrected!“
She then added:
“I fully support survivors of sexual assault coming forward. My post was in no way intended to be insensitive to their truth. Personally, I know from friends and family that such abuse has lifelong residual effects. My heartfelt wish is for healing.”
“When someone feigns sympathy by speaking of ‘your’ truth they are actually saying they don’t believe you. Sixty women came forward with basically identical accounts of being drugged & raped. That is the truth. Legal technicalities & friendship with the rapist can’t change that.“
KISS icon reacted to the court’s decision by saying:
“What? What a travesty. My sympathy to all those brave women who came forward only to now be assaulted again.”

When someone feigns sympathy by speaking of “your” truth they are actually saying they don’t believe you. SIXTY women came forward with basically identical accounts of being drugged & raped. THAT is THE truth. Legal technicalities & friendship with the rapist can’t change that. https://t.co/sMCRs3nq8e
