WeHo City Council Votes to Remove Trump's Walk of Fame Star

Although the resolution unanimously passed, it's still up to the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce.

Monday night, the West Hollywood City Council unanimously voted on a resolution to remove Donald Trump's star from the Hollywood Walk of Fame. The resolution took numerous "disturbing instances" of Trump's into account, including his treatment of women, his anti-immigration policies, his denial of climate change, his defunding of HIV/AIDS programs, and his treatment of trans people. It also pointed out that the star has been destroyed in the past and subsequently replaced with taxpayer dollars.

"At this evening's regular City Council meeting, the City of West Hollywood's City Council voted unanimously to approve a Resolution on the Consent Calendar, which urges the Los Angeles City Council and the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce to remove President Donald J Trump's star from The Hollywood Walk of Fame," the City of West Hollywood said in a statement.

Although the West Hollywood City Council cannot remove the star themselves, the resolution will now be referred the the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce at their next Executive Committee meeting. If approved, it will be the first time a Hollywood Walk of Fame star has been removed.

Since Trump's campaign began, the star has been vandalized and defaced multiple times, most recently destroyed with a pickaxe. Last month, TMZ even caught comedian, George Lopez pretending to urinate on the star.
