You know it's bad when Disney drops you!
On Tuesday evening, a statue of Bill Cosby was removed from Disney's Hollywood Studios theme park in Orlando, Florida. Yikes!
The bust's removal follows the recent development that the TV legend admitted in an unsealed 2005 deposition that he purchased Quaaludes with the intent of giving them to women with whom he wanted to have sex.

In fact, the move was brought about after a Change.org petition demanded that the likeness be taken down after over 40 women accused the iconic funnyman of sexual assault.
However, sources close to the park relayed that the removal was not caused by the petition but was an internal park decision. Hmm, very inneresting.
Prior to its move, the bronze bust stood alongside statues of fellow stars Lucille Ball and Oprah Winfrey at the theme park.
Nonetheless, no criminal charges have been brought to Cosby from the many allegations — but he's certainly been slammed by his own peers.
We can only imagine what affect the current public opinion will have on the current cases against him!
