Bill Cosby is ending the week on another bad note. Aside from being hit with lawsuits from three women that claim he did the same thing he allegedly did to a slew of other victims, he is now having his honorary naval title revoked.
The U.S. Navy’s decision is response to the mounting allegations of rape that have been plaguing Cosby for the past couple of months. The embattled comedian joined the Navy in 1956 and was honorably discharged in 1960 as a 3rd Class Petty Officer and in 2011; he was awarded the honorary title of Chief Petty Officer.
In a statement released on Thursday, the Navy documented that Cosby’s violation of their code of conduct led to the decision, “The Navy is taking this action because allegations against Mr. Cosby are very serious and are in conflict with the Navy’s core values of honor, courage and commitment”.
Despite his world unraveling around him, Cosby has refused to address any of the allegations of sexual misconduct that continue to be levied upon on him, preferring to leave the fight to his attorneys who have dismissed the claims.
