Hollywood is reacting to the newly surfaced allegations of decades-old sexual assault that have come out against Bill Cosby — one of the accusers now being former supermodel Janice Dickinson

Piers Morgan penned a column on the topic for the U.K.'s Daily Mail, Patton Oswalt condemned the comedian on social media, and just after NBC announced the decision to scrap plans for a family show starring Cosby, Roseanne Barr tweeted, "Y did they dump the Cosby sitcom? has something happened? I can't wait 4 spanish fly flavored jello pops 2 hit shelves 4 Xmas! ... maybe Woody Allen or Roman Polanski could b persuaded2 write a part4 Bill Cosby in 1 of their new movies?"

Netflix has also shelved its Thanksgiving comedy special, yet Cosby has remained silent, canceling appearances on The Queen Latifah Show and Late Show With David Letterman, and refusing to respond to questions about the claims during an NPR interview. His social media team's recent challenge led to followers creating memes about the accusations.

See how Hollywood is reacting to the controversy, as well as the social media snafu and decisions on the project.

More to come.
