(ABC News) – The Navy has revoked Bill Cosby’s honorary title as a Master Chief Petty Officer in the wake of recent allegations of sexual assault involving the famous comedian. The Navy veteran had received the honorary award three years ago.

On Thursday Navy Secretary Ray Mabus announced that Cosby’s honorary title of Master Chief Petty Officer had been revoked.

In a statement posted on the Navy’s website Mabus and Master Chief Petty Officer of the Navy Michael Stevens said they were taking the action “because allegations against Mr. Cosby are very serious and are in conflict with the Navy’s core values of honor, courage and commitment.”

In recent weeks at least 18 women have gone public with allegations of sexual assault against the comedian, some involving accusations of rape.
