Following the news that Pennsylvania prosecutors would file a felony charge of aggravated indecent assault against Bill Cosby, many took to social media to express their strong feelings on the matter.

One Twitter user suggested Cosby spill any dirt he had on high-ranking Hollywood executives and politicians because “it’s over.”

Others cried foul on the charges, citing racism. They are outraged that the government would go after Cosby for the alleged 2004 sexual assault of a former Temple University employee, but failed to charge the officers who shot and killed 12-year old black boy Tamir Rice in Ohio.
