Rape allegations haunt Bill Cosby

For years, multiple women had accused America's favorite TV dad, Bill Cosby of sexual assault. But it wasn't until the 77-year-old comedian posted a challenge on Twitter this week to meme him or caption a few classic Cosby photos.

Cosby got more than he bargained for when people created memes labeling him as a rapist.

One of his accusers, Barbara Bowman says she was a 17-year-old aspiring actress when she met Cosby through her agent in New York City. In an interview with CNN's Don Lemon, Bowman claims she was drugged, then raped, though she said she never saw drugs.

Cosby has repeatedly denied the allegations. CNN has reached out to Bill Cosby's representatives and has not received a response.
