As the number of women publicly claiming incidents of sexual assaults at the hands of Bill Cosby continues to increase, the public's response continues to become more tangible. Most recently, his star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame was defaced with graffiti reading "rapist" all over it.
A photo of the vandalized star has surfaced via a Fox 26 viewer:
The graffiti appears to have been done by one person, judging by the single color used and consistent handwriting. Still, though, a better visual representation of the allegations overtaking Cosby's star power, there is not.
The Hollywood Chamber of Commerce, however, didn't appreciate the vandalization, releasing a statement that essentially says they'd prefer no one's star be vandalized, regardless of how many dozen women are accusing that person of sexual assault:
"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."
The star, which is located at the front of 6930 Hollywood Boulevard, is being restored.
