The Walt Disney Co. has removed a bronze bust of comedian Bill Cosby from Florida’s Walt Disney World after reports surfaced that he admitted in a deposition in 2005 to giving women Quaaludes in order to have sex with them.
The revelation is the latest in a long string of sex scandals for the 77-year-old comedian, including allegations from more than 40 women that Cosby drugged and raped them.
NBC News reported Wednesday that the monument to Cosby was removed late Tuesday. A petition calling for its ouster from Disney’s Academy of Television Arts and Sciences Hall of Fame Plaza had circulated online for months.
In related news, two television networks, Black Entertainment Television’s “Centric” and Bounce TV, announced Wednesday they would remove “Cosby Show” reruns from their respective lineups, according to CNN Money.
