Playing Walt Disney World Removes Bill Cosby Statue From Orlando Theme Park

Bill Cosby is facing even more backlash following the revelation that the comedian admitted to obtaining Quaaludes for young women he wanted to have sex with.

An ET source confirms that Walt Disney World's Hollywood Studios theme park near Orlando, Florida removed a statue of The Cosby Show star after the park closed on Tuesday night.

The statue's removal comes after 2005 court documents were unsealed on Monday. This follows sexual misconduct allegations made by more than two dozen women that span several decades. Many of the alleged victims contend that Cosby drugged them before raping or assaulting them, though the comedian has maintained his innocence.

Two more networks have also ceased airing reruns of Cosby's sitcoms. Bounce announced that "effective immediately," it will not broadcast Cosby, the comedian's CBS show from 1996 to 2000. AdWeek also reports that BET's channel Centric will no longer air episodes of The Cosby Show "until further notice."

But not everyone is distancing themselves from the 77-year-old comedian.

The Smithsonian's National Museum of African Art is standing behind their exhibition that includes, in part, Cosby and his wife Camille's art collection. On Tuesday, the museum said in a statement to The Associated Press that it's "aware of the recent revelations about Bill Cosby's behavior," and "in no way condones this behavior." That being said, the Smithsonian says the exhibit itself -- which debuted in November -- is about the artwork and the artists and not about the owner of the pieces.

On Tuesday, the Los Angeles Police Department told ET that they are conducting at least one current criminal investigation into allegations of sexual assault against Cosby. They will also look into any other assault claims made against the comedian, including those past the statute of limitations.
