Council unanimously approves proposal to remove Trump’s Hollywood Walk of Fame star


If California council members have their way, Donald Trump’s Hollywood Walk of Fame star will be removed. It has been targeted by vandals in the years since the former reality TV star’s controversial presidential bid.

Following a vote by the West Hollywood City Council earlier this week, the governing body is set to forward its request to the Los Angeles mayor and city council as well as the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce. The property belongs to L.A. and the city has final say over the star’s future.

Two members of the council say it was specifically allegations about Trump’s “behavior toward women” that prompted the proposal.

The resulting resolution states: “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.”

Council members continued by declaring that a Walk of Fame star “is a privilege that is highly sought after by those in the entertainment industry” and allowing Trump’s marker to stay “should not be acceptable in the Hollywood and entertainment industry communities.”
