West Hollywood Council Votes to Remove Trump’s Hollywood Star

While the city has no jurisdiction on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, members of the West Hollywood council unanimously voted to remove Donald Trump’s star. Mayor John Duran explained to CNN that the vote was symbolic.

“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.”

Hollywood Chamber of Commerce President Leron Gubler, which does have jurisdiction over the star, said there are no plans to remove it as of yet.

This comes after Austin Mikel Clay destroyed Trump’s star with a pickaxe and is now facing a felony count of vandalism.
