The Hollywood Chamber of Commerce said Cosby’s star, which was defaced with a marker pen, was being cleaned up. The organisation filed a police report citing vandalism of a registered California state landmark.
“When people are unhappy with one of our honorees, we would hope that they would project their anger in more positive ways,” the organisation said in a statement.
More than a dozen women have come forward saying Cosby, 77, sexually abused, groped and in some cases drugged them in incidents dating back to the 1960s. One California woman, Judy Huth, filed a lawsuit against Cosby this week accusing him of sexual battery when she was aged 15 in 1974.
The allegations have damaged Cosby’s public image and led to the cancellation of his NBC and Netflix television projects and numerous live comedy concerts. On Thursday, the US Navy revoked Cosby’s title of honorary chief petty officer, saying the allegations conflicted with the military organisation’s beliefs.
