Bill Cosby may still be celebrating his shocking mistrial verdict, but not everyone is supportive of the legendary comedian these days.

Ben’s Chili Bowl, a restaurant in D.C. known for celebrating Black history and culture, has repainted their famous mural — but this time, sans Cosby.

The controversial star has been a regular customer at the Washington hub since his navy days in the 1950’s. A historical sign outside of the restaurant reads, “Thanks in part to the patronage of entertainer Bill Cosby, Ben’s has become a national landmark.”

However, his tragic fall from grace has caused almost everyone to rethink their support of him. The repainting comes just a week after a judge declared a mistrial in Bill Cosby’s sexual assault case.

The Cos may be free from prison, but his legacy will forever be scarred.
