Cosby's Hollywood Walk of Fame star vandalized by graffiti

LOS ANGELES – Bill Cosby's star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame was vandalized this week by someone who scrawled the words "serial rapist."

The graffiti appeared sometime at the end of the Labor Day weekend.

City News Service says Los Angeles police officers found the sidewalk star marred by a marker pen around 5:30 a.m. Tuesday.

The graffiti was similar to vandalism that occurred in 2014 and has since been removed.

Cosby was convicted in Philadelphia this year of aggravated indecent assault on a former Temple University employee who is among many women who have stepped forward to accuse the comedian of sexual misconduct.

Cosby has denied any wrongdoing.
