After a tumultuous series of hearings, and a long deliberation period amongst the jurors, a mistrial was declared in Bill Cosby's sexual assault case on Saturday morning, throwing the nation's most high profile case into serious doubt. Setting up a trial for a public figure like Cosby is hard to begin with, and after a deadlocked jury held up the case, there's no telling when (or if) we'll ever get a verdict on his alleged sexual assault of Andrea Constand.

Cosby, who has been accused of sexually assaulting dozens of women in addition to Constand, has gone from beloved father figure to alleged rapist since accusations came to light in 2014. For many people—particularly women who have personally experienced sexual assault—seeing Cosby escape a guilty verdict, even temporarily, is a failure of the justice system.

After the mistrial was declared in the Cosby case, celebrities and everyday citizens alike spoke out about the perceived injustice, taking to Twitter to air their grievances about the decision. Lena Dunham in particular was outspoken about the result, unleashing a barrage of tweets expressing her disgust.

While Dunham was one of the more prominent voices to speak up, she was not alone in how she felt. Several people immediately tied Cosby's momentary victory to Donald Trump's, who won the 2016 election despite recordings that showed him glorifying sexual assault.

But most of the backlash was focused on the presence of injustice.

Prosecutors have insisted they will continue to pursue sexual assault charges against Cosby, but even if they eventually convict him, Saturday's mistrial highlights the worst fears for a lot of victims of sexual assault. In the end, despite what seemed like strong evidence against Cosby, it will take at least a second trial for even one alleged victim of Cosby's to find justice.
