'Cosby Show' Reruns Pulled From Bounce TV After Guilty Verdict

In the wake of a guilty verdict in Bill Cosby's sexual assault retrial, all reruns of The Cosby Show have been pulled from Bounce TV.

"Effective immediately, Bounce is removing The Cosby Show from our schedule," the network said in a statement, per The Hollywood Reporter.

The move comes after a jury found the comedian guilty on three sexual assault-related charges.

A large number of people who have been following the trial seem to support the verdict, with journalist Dana Schwartz saying, "The Cosby verdict feels like a beautiful exhale."

"Literally gasped in my living room at the Cosby verdict. What a relief," added another Twitter user.

"Bill Cosby found guilty. Good night, you piece of s—. The strength of his accusers is everything," writer/actress Paula Pell fired off.

Several are citing the #MeToo and Times Up movements as a big reason for why Cosby was found guilty.

There are some, however, who have a slightly different take in the wake of the results.

In a since-deleted tweet, one user seemed to criticize Cosby's victims, writing, "I can't understand what these women thought they were going to do in a room with Bill Cosby at 3am. Were they intending to play dominoes? It was Hollywood during the sexual revolution. IF he drugged someone that's awful, but what was the goal of being in a room alone with him?"

Still, there are some who simply cite the good they feel his career has had on society. Los Angeles Lakers player Kyle Kuzma tweeted, "Most of these youngins out here don't even know who HeathCliff Huxtable was.. Bill Cosby had one of the best shows of all time."

Ironically, Kuzma is only 22 years old himself, having been born in 1995, which is a full three years after The Cosby Show went off the air.
