The bust at the Disney’s Hollywood Studios theme park was removed when it closed on Tuesday night, the spokesman told NBC News.

More than a dozen women have accused Cosby of sexually assaulting them. The 77-year-old, who has never been charged with a crime, denies the allegations and is trying to get several court cases thrown out.

Documents unsealed Monday in Pennsylvania showed that Cosby admitted in a 2005 deposition that he obtained prescriptions of the powerful sedative methaqualone, better known by the brand name Quaalude, to give to women he wanted to have sex with.
