  • Bill Cosby bust to be taken down by Disney after conviction of sexual crimes

Bill Cosby’s bronze bust at the Disney theme park in Florida was announced to be taken down after the proof of him drugging and abusing of several women was given in court.

It was recently confirmed by a Walt Disney World spokesman that the bronze bust of Bill Cosby, which sits in the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences Hall of Fame Plaza, will be removed before the opening of the park. 

The former singer, comedian and TV show host has been in the news for the past whole year as 40 plus women came forward to allege the man of drugging them and then using him for sexual means.

Bill Cosby, his wife and supporters have been rallying to defend him saying that they were just allegations until proven. Jill Scott, defended her mentor saying that he was not guilty until proven so and Whoopi Goldberg has also been trying to turn the public view around. 

That was until a previous sworn statement was issued in court from a previous case in which the woman has accused Cosby of drugging her before they consummated in Vegas back in 2005. Cosby then had admitted that he had administered quaaludes to a 19 years old woman before they had sex.

The case was brought forward by Temple University basketball team employee Andrea Constand, which was ultimately settled on confidential terms. The papers were then hidden for almost a decade after Cosby's lawyers argued they would cause severe embarrassment to the man known as lovable father figure Dr Cliff Huxtable.

Upon being questioned by the judge about how many women he had drugged in the similar way, Cosby’s lawyer abstained him from answering the question. The damage however has been done.

The confession however old it may be or under whatever conditions it may have been acquired proves that Cosby is guilty of the crimes he has been accused of unless some still believe that he isn’t. Whoopi Goldberg said that it proved he had drugged the women, it didn’t prove he was a rapist.

Jill Scott has issued a retraction admitting that she was wrong about Cosby while others have commented that Cosby is a real life villain. It was said that we don’t want our children to aspire him as a great TV hero while in reality he was exploiting women at their vulnerable stage. Although the notion is symbolic in removing his bust, it speaks great volumes about the fall of the star from great pathos.
