Bill Cosby's star has officially been tarnished. Following weeks of reputation-damaging allegations of sexual abuse against the comedian, an unknown vandal has defaced Bill Cosby's Hollywood Walk of Fame star, Fox Houston reports.

Cosby's famous sidewalk placard, which sits on the 6900 block of Hollywood Boulevard and was given to him in 1977, was the victim of some graffiti. Someone took a blue pen to the star and wrote "Rapist" three times on it.

The Hollywood Chamber of Commerce has responded to the vandalism, telling Variety, "The Hollywood Walk of Fame is an institution celebrating the positive contributions of the inductees. When people are unhappy with one of our honorees, we would hope that they would project their anger in more positive ways then [sic] to vandalize a California State landmark. The star is being cleaned up at this time."

To date, more than 20 women have come forward with claims that Cosby sexually assaulted them, often using pills to drug them first.
