Kathy Griffin and other celebrities reacted Tuesday to seeing Bill Cosby being led away in handcuffs after a judge sentenced him to 3 to 10 years in prison for sexual assault.
“A beautiful image,” the 57-year-old comedian tweeted Tuesday to her millions of followers, along with a retweet of an article showing a video of the disgraced 81-year-old actor leaving the courtroom with his hands bound in handcuffs after he was sentenced for drugging and sexually assaulting Andrea Constand at his home in Philadelphia in 2004.

“Bill Cosby has been sentenced to 3-10 years for drugging and sexually assaulting many women over the course of many years. His survivors have been sentenced to a lifetime of brutal memories and trauma for daring to exist in the first place. Super fair I guess,” actress Amber Tamblyn tweeted.

Many other members of Hollywood used the “Cosby Show” star’s sentencing to take a swipe at President Donald Trump and his Supreme Court justice nominee Brett Kavanaugh.
#Cosby gets 3-10 years for sexual assault. #Trump admits on tape to sexual assault against women & he becomes president. #Kavanaugh has been accused & yet he’s up for #SupremeCourtJudge. If we’re gonna convict sexual predators to the pen, shouldn’t we convict them all? #TeamDl

Bill Cosby sentenced to 3-10 years for sexual assault that took place years ago, but Brett Kavanaugh can still go to the U.S. Supreme Court without even an FBI investigation into sexual assault allegations against him.

Sure, I mourn the idea of Cosby — as in the TV show that made me want to attend a black college and heightened the importance of a black family. But my mom is a rape survivor and I survived a rape attempt as a preteen. I have negative fucks about what happens to Cosby.

By most/all accounts #BillCosby was a sexual predator who left a trail of human misery&despair-Sentenced to 3-10 in state pen, he had it coming. Still-as an attorney-I predict his conviction will be overturned. Judge went way over the line in allowing unrelated victim testimony.
