Bill Cosby was found guilty on three counts of aggravated indecent assault on Thursday, for drugging and assaulting Andrea Constand in his home back in 2004.
The 80-year-old faces a maximum of 10 years in prison for each charge, though he has not yet been sentenced. He was released on bail, but was ordered to remain inside his Pennsylvania house with a GPS tracker.
After the verdict was read, many in Hollywood turned to Twitter with their reaction to the news, news some saw as a victory for the #MeToo movement. Even Tarana Burke, leader of the movement, tweeted about the conviction.
See how celebrities and other media types reacted on social media:
In a fitting end to Sexual Assault Awareness month, Bill Cosby was found guilty today. Thinking of all the women he traumatized over the past 50 years. As a survivor myself, I know that pain never fully goes away. But I hope that his victims finally feel some semblance of peace.
One of the hard parts about supporting #MeToo movement, is being consistent even when the perpetrators are people we like or admired or who made us laugh for decades. Zero Tolerance, means Zero Tolerance. Even when it is Dr. Huckstable. https://t.co/oP1yTvESCv
