The Cosby Show star's ego took a big hit last week (ends04Oct15), when he was stripped of three academic accolades within the space of seven days, and now officials at Baylor University in Texas have become the fourth school body to rescind the doctor of humane letters award, which the actor received in 2003.
Members on the institution's Board of Regents came to the decision on Thursday (08Oct15) after ruling "acts of interpersonal and sexual violence" clash with the school's values, and they announced the news on Friday (09Oct15).
Cosby lost similar accolades from New York's Fordham University, Wisconsin's Marquette University, and Brown University in Rhode Island late last month (Sep15).
The latest snub, from the world's largest Baptist university, comes as the veteran fights decades-old accusations from more than 50 women, who have come forward with claims of inappropriate behaviour, drugging and rape against the actor in the past year.
Cosby's lawyers have denied all of the claims, while he has never been charged with any crime relating to the allegations. However, he settled one civil suit regarding a similar matter with Andrea Constand in 2006, and in his deposition, which was made public in July (15), the 78 year old confessed to obtaining sedatives called Quaaludes to give to women he wanted to have sex with.
