Cosby will be charged with felony sexual assault for a December 2004 incident allegedly involving former Temple University employee Andrea Constand. Constand is one of more than 50 accusers to come forward this year to claim they were sexually abused by Cosby since last October — allegations Cosby has so far denied.

Some Twitter users even went so far as to make jokes about the situation.


Cosby was expected to be arraigned in a Pennsylvania court on Wednesday afternoon.
