Why no one should be surprised by the accusations against Bill Cosby

Huth alleges that Cosby approached her and a friend in a California park while they were watching him film a movie, and invited them to his tennis club, according to People. There, he gave them alcohol and later brought them to the Playboy Mansion, instructing them to tell people they were 19 if anyone asked. According to court papers obtained by People, Cosby "sexually molest[ed] her by attempting to put his hand down her pants, and then taking her hand in his hand and performing a sex act on himself."

Unlike in previous years, it appears the accusations against Cosby are not going to go away this time around. On Monday, former supermodel Janice Dickinson restated her claim that she had been assaulted by Cosby, calling him a "monster" in an on-camera interview. Cosby also recently stepped down from Temple University's Board of Trustees, and the University of Massachusetts-Amherst, from which Cosby earned a master's and doctorate in education, cut all ties with him last week.
