(Newser) – Yesterday, Bill Cosby lost his honorary title from the Navy. Today, somebody scrawled the word "rapist" over his star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, reports MyFox Houston. The Hollywood Chamber of Commerce dispatched a crew and cleaned it up, adding a plea that people "project their anger in more positive ways," reports AP. Cosby got his star back in 1977. (He also recently had to quit the board of Temple University, his alma mater.)
