Bill Cosby Scrubbed From TV’s Academy’s Hall of Fame
According to The Hollywood Reporter, the actor’s name has been removed from the official list of honorees online following the news of a Pennsylvania jury finding him guilty of sexual assault last week.
“All references to Mr. Cosby were removed from the website,” a spokesperson told Deadline.
To stand in solidarity with Cosby’s victims, multiple colleges have also decided to revoke Cosby’s many honorary degrees. In fact, it’s the first time Yale has done this in its 300-year history as an institution.
The comedian was inducted into the Television Academy in 1992, which was also the final year his famed sitcom The Cosby Show aired.
