Comedian turned America's-Most-Hated-Man Bill Cosby is quickly losing pretty much everything with the exception of the whole "being officially announced as guilty" thing—despite the opinion of the majority. While Cosby seems to continually be accused of raping and/or sexually assaulting women over the years – which enhanced when he admitted to using Quaaludes back in the day – he's now lost his honorary doctorate from Fordham University.

Yep, the university has pulled his doctorate.

With the more than 50 women who have come out against the former Cosby Show star, the University released the following statement:

"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."

The deposition the University is speaking of is the very same one in which Cosby detailed several "nonverbal cues" that he used in order to determine whether or not a woman was willing to consent to a sexual encounter with him.

"I think I'm a pretty decent reader of people and their emotions in these romantic sexual things, whatever you want to call them," he said.

As we've previously reported, Cosby was questioned by lawyers, with one asking if he was merely "making light of a very serious situation." To which he replied that he "may very well be."

With that, Cosby has yet to be convicted of an actual crime.

This isn't the first time we've heard tell of Cosby losing a title, as Gossip Cop reports that an advocacy group attempted to get President Barack Obama to remove his Medal of Freedom. To that, the President claimed that it's not possible largely because there is "no precedent" to do such a thing.
