Women have been accusing Bill Cosby of drugging and raping them for almost a decade now, but for one reason or another, no one ever paid much attention to the allegations. Granted, “The Cosby Show” actor is known for rocking snuggly sweaters and loving pudding, but that’s on television – and when over a dozen women come forward with accusations of rape, you’d think someone would listen. But no, no one really cared until recently, after a comedian brought attention to the fact that Cosby’s allegedly rapey ways have been swept under the rug for so long now.
Since the controversy was reignited, four more women have come forward with the same accusations – one of which happens to be the first-ever supermodel Janice Dickinson, who claims Cosby drugged and raped her back in 1982.
Hollywood is infamous for this kind of large scale coverup. Between Floyd Mayweather, who did two months out of his 87-day prison sentence for brutally beating his wife, Woody Allen, who was accused of sexually abusing his 7-year-old adopted daughter, and R. Kelly, the world seems to easily forget (or excuse) superstar men who have been accused of heinous crimes.
Seriously, below is a gallery of 13 celebrities who are still idolized all over the world even though their personal lives have been tainted by rape, child abuse, domestic violence, and more.
