A statue of American comedian Bill Cosby has been removed from Disney’s Hollywood Studios theme park, a Walt Disney spokesperson confirmed.

The removal of the statue at Disney’s Academy of Television Arts and Sciences Hall of Fame Plaza comes after more than a dozen women accused the embattled 77-year old comedian of sexual assault.

On Monday, unsealed documents which had been kept secret for a decade revealed that Cosby testified in 2005 that he’d obtained Quaaludes with the intent of giving them to women he wanted to have sex with.

Cosby has not released any comment regarding the documents and has never been charged with a crime. He has repeatedly denied the allegations.
