After months of being dragged on television and the Internet for her support of Bill Cosby, it appears that Whoopi Goldberg finally sees the light.
The Oscar winner finally admitted on The View yesterday that Cosby can no longer be considered innocent until proven guilty. "If this is to be tried in the court of public opinion, I got to say all of the information that's out there kind of points to guilt," she said during a conversation with ABC News chief legal analyst Dan Abrams, which garnered a huge applause.
Goldberg also seemed to learn some things from Abrams about the statute of limitations laws when it comes to rape. "I always thought that rape cases were open-ended," she said. "What we have learned is, there's no recourse for these women except what they're doing."
To date, over 40 women have come forward accusing Cosby of drugging and sexually abusing them — allegations Cosby himself admitted to in a deposition for a 2005 lawsuit brought against him by one victim, Andrea Constand. The deposition was made public last week, causing nearly everyone who stood by Cosby during the scandal to bail on him.
Now, it looks like he's lost even his most vocal supporter. Watch our recap of the Cosby fallout below:
