Hollywood City Council Votes to Have Trump’s Walk of Fame Star Removed

The West Hollywood City Council voted Monday night to approve a proposal calling for President Trump’s star to be removed from the Hollywood Walk of Fame. The city council “voted unanimously to approve” the resolution, which urges the Los Angeles City Council and Hollywood Chamber of Commerce to remove the star.

Mayor John Duran told CNN, “The West Hollywood City Council did not pass the resolution because Donald Trump is a conservative or a Republican. Earning a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame is an honor. When one belittles and attacks minorities, immigrants, Muslims, people with disabilities or women — the honor no longer exists.”

The Hollywood Chamber of Commerce has said in the past that it would never remove stars because of a potential backlash. The city council also pointed out that the Walk of Fame is still the “property of the City of Los Angeles” and that the city has the “ultimate responsibility for the condition and maintenance of the Walk of Fame.”  Trump’s star has been vandalized multiple times.
