The U.S. Navy has revoked Bill Cosby's honorary title as chief petty officer, the latest blow to the once-beloved actor-comedian. As sexual assault allegations against him -- true or not -- continue to pile up, the Navy said his situation violates its core values.

“The Navy is taking this action because allegations against Mr. Cosby are very serious and are in conflict with the Navy's core values of honor, courage and commitment," Secretary of the Navy Ray Mabus and Master Chief Petty Officer of the Navy Michael Stevens said in a statement Thursday.

Cosby was given the honorary title in 2011. He spent four years in the Navy after he enlisted in 1956, serving as a hospital corpsman. He was honorably discharged in 1960.

The former Jell-O hocker canceled all his New York tour dates, the Huffington Post wrote. He was supposed to perform two shows at Tarrytown Music Hall. People who purchased tickets will receive a full refund. His shows in Tucson's Diamond Desert casino and Las Vegas' Treasure Island casino-hotel were also axed.

The Cosby scandal broke wide open after comedian Hannibal Buress referenced the rape allegations against “The Cosby Show” star in one of his bits. The attention exploded when Cosby asked Twitter users to “meme me” and memes of him being a rapist went viral. Since then, more than a dozen women, including supermodel Janice Dickinson and Lou Ferrigno’s wife Carla, have come forward with allegations.

Cosby responded through his lawyer Martin Singer that the allegations against him were “ridiculous,” but since famed feminist lawyer Gloria Allred held a press conference with three new purported victims Wednesday, where she challenged him to "end the nightmare," the comedian and his lawyer have remained silent.

While the public generally doubts his innocence, fellow celebrities Whoopi Goldberg and Jill Scott have openly supported Cosby. He thanked them on Twitter.
