In black and white, the faces of 35 Bill Cosby accusers make the cover of New York Magazine. The issue features their story titled "Cosby: The Women - An Unwelcome Sisterhood." The women are pictured in chronological order of their alleged sexual assault by the comedian, who faces accusations that he drugged and sexually assaulted women in incidents that date back years. Hearing about the newly released issue, the streets of New York City, some had their minds made up. (SOUNDBITE) (English) SANDY MAYALAL, SINGAPORE RESIDENT, SAYING: "It's obvious that he is guilty." (SOUNDBITE) (English) ANJU GONZALEZ, NEW YORK RESIDENT, SAYING: "I used to watch him on TV when I was a kid, so it's kind of sad to hear about it. And I know it's on the front of the magazine today. It's crazy how many people and there is probably more. It's terrible." Others demanded more evidence. (SOUNDBITE) (English) MOUCTAR LE BON, NEW YORK RESIDENT, SAYING: "When I was young I liked the guy so much. Now, I see something different. I saw what. . . I need more proof, more proof, more proof, more proof." (SOUNDBITE) (English) MIKE ZARUBA, TOURIST, SAYING: "Honestly, that it's kind of a ploy or plot to get money out of him, that was my first reaction." While he has never been criminally charged, Cosby faces at least four civil lawsuits relating to the sexual assault allegations. Cosby's lawyers have consistently denied the accusations.
