However, some people are still in support of the comedian and actor.

Faizon Love took to Twitter to write the following: “Well America you finally got what you wanted A Black Face for Rape this is truly a f**ked up day….Bill Cosby you should of [sic] ran for president. Do you know the difference between Emmett Till case and Bill Cosby case, not one got damn thing.”

The tweets weren’t well-received, with other people calling out Love for his remarks.

A jury of seven men and five women voted after about 14 hours of deliberation to convict the 80-year-old Cosby on three counts of sexual assault after prosecutors called five additional accusers to the stand, Buzzfeed reported. The women testified that they were all drugged by Cosby. Four of them, including model Janice Dickinson, said they were also sexually assaulted.

Cosby could spend his final days alive in prison if he’s given the maximum sentence of 30 years, as well as a fine of up to $25,000 on each of the three counts.

More than 50 women have accused Cosby of drugging and sexually assaulting them over the span of decades. However, Constand’s allegation was the only criminal case to be brought to a verdict, largely because most of the accusations were too old to prosecute.
