Bill Cosby's team decided to issue a statement about Harvey Weinstein's rape conviction on his social media accounts, calling the decision a "sad day in the American Judicial System," and now people are flooding his account with outrage.

After Harvey Weinstein was found guilty of third-degree rape, Bill Cosby's representative, Andrew Wyatt, posted a statement on Cosby's social media in reaction to the verdict.

"This is not shocking because these jurors were not sequestered, which gave them access to media coverage and the sentiments of public opinion. There’s no way you would have anyone believe that Mr. Weinstein was going to receive a fair and impartial trial, " he began his remarks.

He continued, "Also, this judge showed that he wanted a conviction by sending the jurors back to deliberate after they were hung on many of the counts. Here’s the question that should haunt all Americans, especially wealthy and famous men...Where do we go in this country to find fairness and impartiality in the judicial system; and where do we go in this country to find Due Process? Lastly, if the #metoo movement isn’t just about Becky [White women], I would challenge #metoo and ask them to go back 400+ years and tarnish the names of those oppressors that raped slaves."

He ended his statement saying, "This is a very sad day in the American Judicial System. #FreeBillCosby"

The Public Furiously Floods Cosby's Accounts With Outrage

Immediately following the publishing of this very unpopular view of the justice served against Weinstein, the public commented on Bill's accounts furious anyone would take that position.

"Oh you poor wealthy and famous men... The real injustice is that it took so long for you to be convicted," one person said.

Another added, "All of these rich powerful men should be scared now, we are coming for all of you! Teach men to not rape. It’s that simple. Too much evidence supports both Harvey and Bill’s convictions."

Many took the same position that both men thought they could get away with it and should both be held accountable for their crimes. "Harvey Weinstein, just like Bill Cosby, thought that he could get away with abusing women because he was rich, famous, and powerful. But thanks to the #metoo movement, women are no longer afraid to speak out and these predators are finally facing justice," one comment read.

Another added, "Bill Cosby whining that there's no fairness and impartiality or due process in the U.S.? Ironic. He's on a pedestal but you have poor men, many of them minorities, who are put in jail over false accusations. Hell, Cosby supported Tawana Brawley, who LIED about being raped by police officers and a NY assistant DA. Where was THEIR due process? Cosby is upset because he can't drug women and take advantage of them anymore. Enjoy the commissary Jell-O, Bill."

As we reported, Harvey Weinstein was convicted on two charges and faces up to 25 years in prison. Bill Cosby is currently serving his sentence behind bars for similar crimes.
