ORLANDO, Fla., July 8 (UPI) -- Walt Disney World has removed the Bill Cosby statue from the Orlando theme park Tuesday.

The decision to remove the bust came after the comedian admitted to giving Quaaludes to a woman before they were going to have sex.

A Disney spokesman confirmed the news to NBC that the company removed it from Disney's Hollywood Studios, Tuesday night after the park closed for the day.

Disney is the latest company to distance itself from the 77-year-old actor, who has been battling sexual allegations from over two dozen women.

While some of Cosby's co-stars have stuck up for him like Raven-Symoné, after Monday's revelation, Cosby is receiving more backlash then ever.

Entertainment Tonight reports numerous television stations have stopped airing Cosby's sitcoms, including Bounce, who announced the change was "effective immediately." According to AdWeek, BET's channel Centric is pulling The Cosby Show off the air "until further notice."
