Bill Cosby's Walk of Fame Star Vandalized

By Robert Paul Reyes

"Los Angeles police are investigating the vandalism of comedian Bill Cosby`s star on the iconic Hollywood Walk of Fame, which was marked with the word `rapist,` officials said.


A photo of the vandalism surfaced on social media Friday morning, showing `rapist` scrawled across the star three times in marker. By midmorning, a cleaning crew was on scene."

Bill Cosby`s star has been tarnished by the myriad accusations of rape, now it has the word "Rapist" written on it.

Why in the name of God is the LA Police Department wasting time and financial resources investigating this petty crime? You`d think a city with an endemic gang problem would have more pressing problems to address.

The word "Rapist" was scrawled on Cosby`s star three times in marker, it wasn`t chiseled or spray painted on. This strikes me more as a demonstration of freedom of speech than a criminal act.

It took only a couple of minutes for Cosby`s star to be wiped clean, but his reputation is irrevocably shattered and he will be a pariah for the rest of his life.
