Disney's Hollywood Studios removes Bill Cosby statue


  • via Huffington Post

Everybody's reporting on it today: Walt Disney World's Hollywood Studios has removed the statue of Bill Cosby from its Academy of Television Arts and Sciences Hall of Fame Plaza. 

The bronze bust was removed Tuesday night, according to the AP, presumably in response to the revelation that Cosby said in a 2005 deposition that he did obtain Quaaludes to give to women before he had sex with them.

By Miss Troiani:

Q. When you got the Quaaludes, was it in your mind that you were going to use these Quaaludes for young women that you wanted to have sex with?

A. Yes.
