Bill Cosby’s Walk of Fame Star Vandalised with Word ‘Rapist’

Comedian Bill Cosby’s star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame was vandalized on Friday with the word “rapist” written over it.

This happened after numerous women came forward in recent weeks alleging Cosby had sexually assaulted them in incidents dating back decades.

The Hollywood Chamber of Commerce said Cosby’s star, which was defaced with a marker pen, was being cleaned up. The organisation filed a police report citing vandalism of a registered California state landmark.

“When people are unhappy with one of our honourees, we would hope that they would project their anger in more positive ways,” the organisation said in a statement.

More than a dozen women have come forward saying Cosby, 77, sexually abused, groped and in some cases drugged them in incidents dating back to the 1960s.

One California woman, Judy Huth, filed a lawsuit against Cosby this week accusing him of sexual battery when she was aged 15 in 1974.

Cosby’s attorney has called the allegations discredited and defamatory.

The trailblazing African-American comic best known as the wholesome Dr. Cliff Huxtable on the long-running, top-rated television series “The Cosby Show,” has not been charged with any crimes.

The allegations have damaged Cosby’s public image and led to the cancellation of his NBC and Netflix television projects and numerous live comedy concerts.

On Thursday, the U.S. Navy revoked Cosby’s title of honorary chief petty officer, saying the allegations conflicted with the military organisation’s beliefs.

    So my brother is killing me here with a Cosby accent saying..” Bill Cosby only like putting his pudding in chocolate pudding” and like swears this women are getting money from somewhere only thing I don’t get is not one black woman has come forward and his been doing his chocolate wife for years so I know he has to like chocolate. According to him, ain’t no black guy dumb enough to do that date drug mess cause they’ve been cautioned since they were children. Well here’s my own I believe the women won’t just make up vicious lies for no reason so let’s get lie detector test from multiple credible sources for both sides. But after this girl in that college lied, I’m starting to think there could be crazy deceitful women targeting males(especially of color).

    Its just an issue cause I don’t know why all these women are all coming out now. Is there no law then when all these raping was going on. Were n’t people jail for crimes then. so where is the evidence that all this really happened. I think they are just looking for ways to make money. Its common in USA.
