Bill Cosby’s Hollywood Walk of Fame Star remains despite sex scandal

Bill Cosby‘s star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame will not go to prison with him.

The Hollywood Chamber of Commerce has said it will not remove Cosby‘s star despite his sentencing on Tuesday.

According to SkyNews, a rep for the organisation in charge of the LA tourist attraction, revealed that while his actions are “regrettable”, the Hollywood Walk of Fame remains “a historical record of entertainment figures past and present”.

“Once installed, the stars become part of the historic fabric of the Walk of Fame, a ‘designated historic cultural landmark’, and are intended to be permanent. The stars only commemorate the recipient’s professional accomplishments. It is regrettable when the personal lives of inductees do not measure up to public standards and expectations; however, the Hollywood Chamber Of Commerce does not remove stars from the Walk Of Fame.”

The statement comes after immense pressure by the public to have his star removed. Cosby’s star was unveiled on Hollywood Boulevard in 1977.
