West Hollywood city council has unanimously approved a motion calling for the removal of Donald Trump’s star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
West Hollywood’s city council voted on Monday in favor of eliminating the president’s star from the Hollywood Walk of Fame due to Trump’s disturbing treatment of women and other actions.
The statement reads:
“Starting with the 2016 presidential election, some disturbing instances concerning Mr. Trump’s treatment of women came to light. Similar to how certain members of the entertainment community have been removed from the Academy of Motion Pictures, due to their actions toward women, reflecting a stance on their values by the Academy, this is an opportunity for decision-makers to take a stand on their values in support of women and against the disturbing treatment of women. It should be noted that Mr. Trump’s star on the Walk of Fame has been destroyed in the past, and has been replaced by the City of Los Angeles using taxpayer funds.”
The council will send a formal letter to the overseeing bodies, Los Angeles city council and Hollywood Chamber of Commerce, asking them to consider it as they have no control over the Walk of Fame.
But, the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce has currently “no plans to remove any stars from the Hollywood Walk of Fame.”
The Hollywood Chamber of Commerce said in a statement to Variety:
“Once we receive a communication from the City of West Hollywood, it will be referred to our Executive Committee for consideration at their next meeting. As of now, there are no plans to remove any stars from the Hollywood Walk of Fame. The West Hollywood City Council does not have jurisdiction over the Hollywood Walk of Fame.” said Leron Gubler, president, and CEO of the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce.
But, the motion is unlikely to approve as no star has ever been removed before once the star has been added to the walk.
