Netflix also pulled his upcoming Thanksgiving special.
His fans have not been coming out of the woodwork in his defense. Quite the contrary; when Bill Cosby's social media team created a meme twitter link to allow his fans to write loving, supportive messages on photos of him, tweeters instead overwhelmingly used the link to call him a rapist.
No throngs of old show business colleagues, co-stars, associates, friends, or even family members have rushed forward to publicly stand up for Bill Cosby. No one has testified that he's a wonderful human being who's incapable of committing the crimes he's being accused of him. No one is defending him.
He won't even defend himself. Or can't.
And so Bill Cosby is no longer America's beloved entertainer. His name is ruined. His career is probably over and so, most likely, is life as he's known it.
His fatal mistake was failing to realize that girls who are vulnerable, easily victimized and easily silenced when they're young don't necessarily stay that way. He didn't foresee these girls growing up to become strong, successful women - a college administrator, an actress, an attorney, a journalist, a television star, - who would one day finally find their voices.
And use their voices to take away his.
