35 Cosby Accusers Photographed for New York Magazine
New York magazine published this week’s cover on Sunday featuring 35 women who have accused Bill Cosby of sexual assault. All 35 women were interviewed separately over the past six months for the explosive photo essay, which provides comprehensive accounts of their trauma and signals a shift in public perception of Cosby’s accusers. “I think his legacy is going to be similar to OJ’s legacy,” said Joan Tarshis, one of Cosby’s accusers. “When you hear OJ Simpson’s name, you don’t think: ‘Oh, great football player.’ That doesn’t come to mind first. I’m thinking it’s not going to be: ‘Oh, great comedian.’ It’s going to be, ‘Oh, serial rapist.’ And that will be our legacy.” More than 40 women have so far accused the embattled comedian of sexual assault.
