Stars react to charges against Bill Cosby

The drama surrounding Bill Cosby and dozens of allegations of sexual assault finally came to a head when the comedian was charged Wednesday with drugging and sexually assaulting a woman at his home 12 years ago. The criminal charges are the first brought against the comedian out of the many allegations that surfaced over the past year.

Cosby was charged with aggravated indecent assault, punishable by five to 10 years behind bars and a $25,000 fine. He appeared at a Pennsylvania courtroom for less than 10 minutes to post $100,000 for his $1 million bond.

Now, some celebrities are speaking out about today's hearing and Cosby's legacy. Judd Apatow, who has been outspoken about the allegations since they began, wrote on Twitter that he hopes Cosby's accusers will have a chance to speak in court. Some stars cracked jokes about the comedian, while others simply expressed their disappointment.
