On the heels of his conviction on sexual assault charges, comedian and TV icon Bill Cosby has been kicked out of the Television Academy’s Hall of Fame, Deadline reports.
Cosby’s name and statue were removed from the Hall, the story reports. A spokesperson for the Academy told the publication that all references to Cosby were also removed from the website.
Cosby was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 1992.
“Removing a member of the TV Academy’s Hall of Fame is unprecedented, so it’s unclear what the procedure might be for such a move,” Deadline notes. “Regardless, the scrubbing of Cosby’s name and bust is an indication the group is distancing itself from the actor-comedian.”
