Is Social Media Responsible for Bill Cosby’s Takedown?

Social media was a key factor in the prosecution of actor and comedian Bill Cosby, who was convicted Thursday of drugging and molesting Andrea Constand, formerly of Temple University, experts told The Crime Report.

Victims can now come forward with “the push of a button,” said Jeff Herman, a lawyer in Boca Raton, Fl., who handles sexual abuse cases. “We saw a flood of victims coming forward on social media, which created a platform for women to join together and support each other.”

Herman noted that in the days before the internet, powerful men like Bill Cosby engaged in “bad behavior” and could use their power to protect themselves. Consequently, victims felt they had no voice.
