Longtime Bill Cosby fans David Letterman and Jerry Seinfeld have chosen to take their names, and comments praising the comedian, out of his 2014 biography Cosby: His Life and Times. The yank isn't too shocking considering Cosby's rape and sexual assault allegations, yet it seems the duo aren't the only ones whose names are being pulled. The book's publisher, Simon and Schuster, are pulling all the celeb blurbs from the books appearing on Amazon, according to the Associated Press. 

The biography, written by Mark Whitaker, reportedly had blurbs from the likes of Seinfeld, Letterman, Billy Crystal and Mary Tyler Moore but reps have confirmed that both Seinfeld and the former Late Show host have asked for their names and comments on Cosby in the book to be removed.

Gawker notes that both comedians have been rather quiet when it comes to the Cosby situation, with Seinfeld only saying that it's both "sad" and "incomprehensible" and Letterman keeping quiet about it all.

Blurbs and names being pulled from Cosby: His Life and Times come after reports that more than 40 women have come out against the famed comedian with accusations of sexual assault. Recently, documents from a 2005 deposition were released in which Cosby admits to having purchased Quaaludes with the intent to give them to young women for sexual gratification.

Aside from the Cosby news, Seinfeld just finished up his newest season of Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee (which we're guessing Cosby will not be a guest on). Letterman, of course, just closed out The Late Show.
