Bill Cosby Mural in Philadelphia Painted Over
"A Philadelphia mural featuring Bill Cosby has been painted over as new details emerge of his testimony in a sexual-assault lawsuit.
The city`s Mural Arts Program says the fatherhood-themed mural in North Philadelphia was deteriorating and already scheduled for removal.
But spokeswoman Cari Feiler Bender says the date was moved up amid renewed allegations that Cosby drugged and sexually assaulted women. A deposition released this month shows the married father of five acknowledged he got sedatives to give to women before sex."

Kudos to the Philadelphia Mural Arts Program for painting over the mural featuring the despicable and execrable Bill Cosby, with this noble act the City of Brotherly Love honors the disgraced comic`s victims.
Philadelphia should now commission an artist to paint an anti-rape mural on the empty space. As a society we must demonstrate that not even a world-famous entertainer can get away with rape.
Bill Cosby should be painted over from every aspect of pop culture: His star on Hollywood`s Walk of Fame should be removed by the city or literally painted over by a vigilante; President Obama should revoke his Presidential Medal of Freedom; his sitcoms must be removed from every network, he should be banned from every comic venue; and every university that bestowed an honorary degree on the serial rapist must take it back. When Cosby ventures out in public he should be showered with insults , this monster doesn`t deserve a moment of peace.
Cosby`s soul is as deteriorated as his mural in Philadelphia that was painted over, from now on until he finally and mercifully dies; if we speak of Cosby at all it must be in the language of expletives.
