Bill Cosby's recent conviction has sparked quite the response in many, particularly those who have been survivors of sexual assault, themselves. 

One of those brave individuals is actress Gabrielle Union, who recently took some time to share her thoughts on the verdict and share some important words on what this means for sexual predators everywhere.

During her appearance at CinemaCon in Las Vegas, the Being Mary Jane star explained that the fallen comedian's guilty verdict serves as a warning sign for other men who have been accused of sexual misconduct.

"This is just the first domino to go with many, many more," she said. "There's a lot of people who should be very, very worried about their freedom because justice is coming for you."

Union, who has publicly shared her own personal experience with sexual assault, added that, as shown in Cosby's case, justice knows no age.

"If you think that you've aged out of justice, think again because victims/survivors — our memories are long — you can run, you can hide, but justice will find you," she said.

The 80-year-old comedian, who was recently convicted of all three counts of felony aggravated indecent assault, faces up to 30 years in prison.
