Bill Cosby's Walk of Fame star defaced


ANI Washington DC, [USA]
Comedian Bill Cosby's Hollywood Walk of Fame star was defaced following his conviction in a sexual assault case against him.
Concerned authorities decided not to remove the star despite the actor's conviction. Earlier this week, his star was defaced with the phrase 'SERIAL RAPIST' but was quickly cleared.
According to TMZ, some unknown person again wrote 'SERIAL RAPIST' and '#METOO' on his star with a permanent marker.
Cosby's sentence came after a lengthy trial where he faced accusations from former Temple University employee Andrea Constand and was eventually found guilty. He was found to have drugged and raped her at his suburban Philadelphia home in 2004.
Since then, multiple women came forward against "The Cosby Show" star.
The first part of the hearings focused on the prosecution's efforts to label Cosby as a sexually violent predator.
Cosby's trial was heralded as the first major celebrity trial of the #MeToo movement, and the first to result in a conviction.
