Bill Cosby Statue Removed From Disney World Resort

A Bill Cosby statue has been removed from Walt Disney World Resort near Orlando, Fla.

The bronze bust was taken down from Disney’s Hollywood Studios theme park on Tuesday night, a spokesman told NBC News.

An online petition calling for the statue’s removal had circulated for months. The TV section of the resort’s Academy of Television Arts and Sciences Hall of Fame Plaza also houses tributes to Oprah Winfrey and Lucille Ball, among other celebrities.

Court documents unsealed Monday revealed that Cosby testified in 2005 to obtaining Quaaludes with the intention of drugging women in order to have sex with them. Dozens of women have come forward in the last year accusing the comedian of sexual assault.
