Things aren’t looking too well for Bill Cosby after he was found guilty of three counts of sexual assault.

Before the guilty verdict, the comedian/ actor’s name was removed from the Television Academy Hall of Fame’s website.


According to USA Today, the academy confirmed that Cosby’s status is under review following his conviction.

Cosby was inducted into the Hall of Fame back in 1992 during a ceremony at Disney World. Although his name has been removed from the website’s list of honorees, his bio still remains on the website.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, a statue of Cosby that once stood in the Hall of Fame Plaza will not return to be displayed. The statue was removed during renovations, but it will reportedly not return after the renovations are completed.

Yale has also rescinded their honorary degree from Cosby, making it the first honorary degree to be taken back in the school’s history.
