Disney is removing a statue of Bill Cosby from its theme park after a judge unsealed documents from 2005 in which the comedian admitted to drugging women so he could have sleep with them.
Officials at the park confirmed that the 77-year-old’s statue at Hollywood Studios will come down. Reports speculate that the park dismantled it Tuesday night after it closed.

A former Temple University employee sued Cosby in 2005 for sexual abuse, and during his deposition Cosby said he got quaalude prescriptions with the intent of sleeping with young women. The two parties later settled out of court for an undisclosed amount of money. (RELATED: Bill Cosby In Deposition: I Gave Women Drugs So I Could Have Sex With Them)
Whoopi Goldberg defended Cosby Tuesday on “The View” and said Cosby’s admission didn’t make him guilty. (RELATED: Whoopi Goldberg Defends Bill Cosby: ‘The 80s Weren’t For Everybody’)
