Bill Cosby’s Hollywood Walk of Fame star had to be refinished after it was updated to reflect the recent and not-so-recent allegations against him.
A Hollywood Chamber of Commerce spokesperson was not amused by the “rapist” graffiti,telling reporters, “When people are unhappy with one of our honorees, we would hope that they would project their anger in more positive ways then to vandalize a California State landmark.”
In a separate interview with MSNBC, former Cosby collaborator Debbie Allen also touched on tarnished American landmarks.
“I think [Cosby’s reputation] certainly is tarnished…that anyone is asking the question,” she said of Cosby’s reputation. “Just imagine Mickey Mouse saying that he raped Minnie. Mickey Mouse is part of the fabric of America. Whether he did it or not, the question is being raised.”
