The West Hollywood City Council Wants To Permanently Remove Trump’s Walk Of Fame Star

7

Since before the 2016 presidential election, Donald Trump’s Hollywood Walk of Fame star has seen just about everything. It was smashed into pieces – twice. It was vandalized with a swastika, enclosed with a miniature border wall, defaced with profanity and graced with the presence of a gold-painted toilet.

Trump supporters have fought back, defending the star. Late last month, hours after a man destroyed the star with a pickax, a fierce brawl ensued, leaving one person kicked in the head and another bleeding from the face.

The site has become a symbol not only of the nation’s celebrity president but of the polarization surrounding him. And a nearby city council has had enough of it.

On Monday night, the West Hollywood City Council voted unanimously in favor of a resolution to ask for the removal of Trump’s star, due to the president’s “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.” It cited President Donald Trump’s lewd comments on the Access Hollywood tape, his policy of separating families at the border, and his denial of Russian interference in the 2016 election.

Since the city of West Hollywood does not have any control over the Walk of Fame, the council’s resolution simply urges the City Council of Los Angeles and the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce to remove the star.

“These are the sort of icons and images that define us as Americans,” West Hollywood Mayor John Duran told The Washington Post late Monday night. “To think that we would pay tribute to someone who’s causing such a horrible disaster to our country’s values.”

Trump received his star on the Walk of Fame in 2007 for his work as the producer of the Miss Universe Pageant. His is one of more than 2,500 coral terrazzo and brass stars on the two-mile stretch of the popular Hollywood tourist attraction. Each year a committee sifts through about 200 nominations to select 20 to 24 new stars to add to the Walk of Fame.

  1. Treatment of women? He w does Hollywood treat them with all of their filthy movies and do the women act and they are complaining close down Hollywood and all of the filming industry and then I will believe you are serious

  2. These nasty perverts in west hollywierd should keep their noses out of L.A, City business. Try to take care of your own city full of sick people with warped minds who belong in mental institutions. Crawl back into your closets and shut up.

  3. Maybe we can rename 13 ave as Trump boulevard. And Lee ave as well as Ave J.
    The problem is these Jew hating lefty liberals would try to destroy it. I had two Trump flags in front of my house and twice they try to steal it. One time two guys tried to rip it off just as I was exiting my house and I gave a yell and they ran away real quick. What I’m going to do next election is put sharp wires around the pole so they cut their hands.

  4. Trump is scary to consider the world must think an attack on his placed star makes a difference. I guess the world has enough money to fix it. It might just the cult thing of the future. Can you imagine?

    If they remove it, they better put it somewhere else. It is a placement that was honest to begin. I guess that may be.

    What is Mr. Jive the madness to make such staged events? Why distract the world that is at war? Absurd.

    A new uncanny future. A president with a star on Hollywoods street. Mr. Obama could not even pull that one off.

    Well, I imagine its good newsday. Some anarchist to his best pickax. Its too absurd to think that such a target is not often hit.

    Wonder what to do.
