The publisher of a disparaged biography of Bill Cosby has pulled blurbs from Billy Crystal, Mary Tyler Moore and other celebrities from dedicated web pages on Amazon.com and other retailers.

Simon & Schuster vice president and executive director of publicity Cary Goldstein told The Associated Press on Wednesday that because of ”recent events” it was removing the endorsements for Mark Whitaker’s ”Cosby,” which came out last fall to positive reviews but was soon heavily criticized for overlooking the many allegations against Cosby of sexual assault. Moore’s quote had read: ”If I was America’s `sweetheart’ – turning the world on with a smile – then Bill Cosby was and still is our `best man.”’

Goldstein did not have an immediate comment on any changes to the actual book.
