Ac­tivists call for re­moval of Bill Cosby's star from Hol­ly­wood Walk of Fame

Cape Breton Post - - ARTS/ENTERTAINMENT -

LOS AN­GE­LES - A coali­tion of black civil rights ac­tivists is call­ing on the Hol­ly­wood Cham­ber of Com­merce to re­move Bill Cosby's star from the Hol­ly­wood Walk of Fame. The ac­tivists, in­clud­ing Earl Ofari Hutchin­son, called for the star's re­moval Thurs­day. The Hol­ly­wood Cham­ber of Com­merce re­leased a state­ment say­ing it has never re­moved a star from the walk and will not do so in Cosby's case. Most of the ac­tivists pre­vi­ously re- mained largely neu­tral on the al­le­ga­tions against Cosby. But they made the re­quest af­ter re­cently re­leased court doc­u­ments from a 2005 de­po­si­tion, where Cosby ac­knowl­edged buy­ing Quaaludes to drug women he wanted to have sex with. More than two dozen women have ac­cused Cosby of sex­ual mis­con­duct.
