Bill Cosby Stripped Of Fordham University Honorary Doctorate
Bill Cosby’s new reputation is costing him his University ties one by one. First Bill was tossed aside by Spelman College in Atlanta and willingly withdrew from the board of trustees at Temple, and now more institutions of higher education are severing ties with the fallen comedian.
Fordham University has officially revoked the Honorary Doctorate they granted to Bill Cosby in 2001. The decision was made during a Board of Trustees meeting on earlier today. University president Joseph McShane introduced a motion to strike Cosby’s doctorate degree and the members of the board unanimously agreed, marking the first time in histroty that the school revoked an honorary degree.
In an official statement to the student body the university said: “The University has taken this extraordinary step in light of Mr. Cosby’s now-public court depositions that confirm many of the allegations made against him.”
Yikes. We wonder who will drop him next…
