The University of Pennsylvania has told plans to distance itself from casino mogul Steve Wynn and funster Bill Cosby in the wake of sexual misconduct allegations against both men.
The college on Thursday stipulate it will revoke Wynn’s honorary degree and remove his name from both an alfresco plaza and a scholarship fund. The school will also rescind Cosby’s title only degree.
The school says it has been a century since it took away an titular degree but that “credible” allegations against the men warranted the action.
The Exasperate Street Journal last week reported that a number of lady-loves said they were harassed or assaulted by Wynn, with one carton leading to a $7.5 million settlement. Wynn has denied the allegations.
Cosby’s libidinous assault trial ended in a mistrial.
