Just How Far Has Bill Cosby Fallen in the Public’s Eyes? Here Are Some Numbers

Nov 26, 2014  •  Post A Comment

It is no surprise that public trust in comedian Bill Cosby has plummeted in the wake of mounting allegations that he sexually assaulted a number of women in the past. But the swiftness and depth of his decline have been remarkable, the British publication The Independent reports.

Last year, Cosby was No. 3 on the list of Most Trusted Celebrities alongside Tom Hanks and Kate Middleton; now he’s at 2,615, according to the publication, which cites the Marketing Arm, an Omnicom Group unit. The company told the paper that such a decline in public opinion is rare.

“Cosby’s social media popularity has also been significantly marred,” the report adds. “Networked Insights, which analyzes social media, has found that of nearly 700,000 comments made about Cosby in the first 20 days of November, a third of those were negative.”

  1. Not far enough! Alleged sexual predators like Bill Cosby and accused pedophiles like Sylvain Kustyan, Jerry Sandusky, etc. must be apprehended before they have decades to prey upon our children. Sandusky is behind bars. But unfortunately, Sylvain Kustyan, who has been formally charged with two counts each of 1st Degree Sodomy of a ten-year-old little boy, fled to avoid imminent arrest. Kustyan, formerly of Tuscaloosa, Alabama and Hermin/ Mazingarbe, France, is now a fugitive from the law and thought to have returned to his native France, a country which has a no-extradition policy. Victims of Child Sexual Abuse often suffer lifelong physical problems as well as the psychological and emotional trauma from their horrifying experiences. Male victims have 3x’s the heart attack risk and 10x’s the suicide rate. Since the average pedophile has 300 different victims in their lifetime and since the recidivism rate among pedophiles is virtually 100% they must be stopped ASAP

  2. Did I miss something? He assaulted women not children… I would have to question these women’s intentions anyway. Once you take money to be quiet, you can no longer claim to be a victim. Chances are most of these accusations are false from any gold digger that he winked at.

  3. We,as a people should not be quick to judge!! The truth will before our God.Dr.Cosby be stronge.accusers be careful of what you may say!!!You all know if these accur. Your names will be tarnish also.
