Amid the growing sex scandal surrounding actor Bill Cosby, WESH.com reported earlier today that Disney will remove a bust of the actor currently on display inside Disney's Hollywood Studios park.

The statue is one of more than a dozen statues in a recreation of Hollywood's Academy of Television Arts and Sciences Hall of Fame Plaza. Cosby is one of the named celebrities listed on the Disney World website about the exhibit. Others include Walt Disney, Michael Landon and Betty White. The statues on display change from time to time.

A niece of one of the alleged victims started an online petition in December to have the Cosby statue removed. The statue is slated to be removed after park hours on Tuesday, July 7.
