Fake nice guy Fake degrees Fake morals Always room for Jello.... never fake Fordham In a statement, Fordham said as a Jesuit university, it could "no longer stand behind the degree" it gave to Cosby in 2001. The school said Cosby was unworthy of the honor not just because of the actions he admitted to in a deposition -- that he obtained drugs to give to women he wanted to have sex with -- but also because Fordham believed he engaged in a "longtime strategy" of verbally attacking his female accusers. "That Mr. Cosby was willing to drug and rape women for his sexual gratification, and further damage those same women's reputations and careers to obscure his guilt, hurt not only his victims, but all women, and is beyond the pale," the statement read. Over the years, dozens of women have accused Cosby of sex assault, but he has denied the accusations and has never been charged. This is the first time that Fordham has rescinded an honorary degree.
