West Hollywood City Council to vote on removing Trump’s Walk of Fame star

The West Hollywood City Council is voting on whether to seek the removal of President Trump’s star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the city council is looking to vote Monday night on a resolution that urges the Los Angeles City Council and Hollywood Chamber of Commerce to remove the marker. 

The star has been repeatedly vandalized and destroyed twice since Trump took office.

“The City Council will consider adopting a resolution urging the Los Angeles City Council and Hollywood Chamber of Commerce to remove President Donald J. Trump’s star from the Hollywood Walk of Fame, due to his disturbing treatment of women and other actions that do not meet the shared values of the City of West Hollywood, the region, state, and country,” the city council wrote in the resolution. 

“Having a ‘star’ on the Walk of Fame is a privilege that is highly sought after by those in the entertainment industry, allowing Mr. Trump to continue to have a star in light of his behavior toward women, particularly in the #timesup and #metoo movements, should not be acceptable in the Hollywood and entertainment industry communities,” the resolution continued.

{mosads}The Hollywood Chamber of Commerce has said in the past that it would never remove stars because of a backlash.

But the city council also pointed out in the resolution 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.” 

The resolution arrives weeks after a man used a pickax to vandalize the president’s star.

The man, Austin Clay, later claimed responsibility for vandalizing Trump’s star and turned himself in at the Beverly Hills police headquarters. He was reportedly bailed out by the man who vandalized the star years ago, James Otis.
