Bill Cosby star on Hollywood Walk of Fame vandalized to say ‘serial rapist’

Actor and comedian Bill Cosby's star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame became the latest target of vandalism this week.

Cosby's star on the famed strip was vandalized Monday night with a permanent marker to read "serial rapist," a reference to sexual assault and rape charges against the former "Cosby Show" star, according to CNNN.

Cosby was found guilty in April of sexually assaulting a former Temple University employee at his home back in 2004.

This is the second time since 2014 that Cosby's star has been defaced, CNN reported.

According to police, the permanent marker has since been removed following Monday night's vandalism.

Other stars on the Walk of Fame, including the one for President Trump, have been vandalized in recent months. A man smashed Trump's star with a pickax in July.

The West Hollywood City Council voted in August not to replace Trump's star, citing sexual misconduct allegations against Trump as a key reason for not re-extending the honor.
