It’s no secret that Donald Trump’s star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame has been vandalized a few times since he’s taken office. However, the West Hollywood City Council is now looking to have the star removed.
According to the New York Post, the West Hollywood City Council recently voted to have Trump’s star removed from the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Mayor John Duran tweeted about it late Monday.

The council will now send a formal letter to Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti, the Los Angeles City Council and the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce, asking them to consider removing Trump’s star. However, a recent statement from the commerce has many people thinking that the removal of the star will unlikely happen.
Leron Gubler, the organization’s president, and CEO said, “The Hollywood Walk of Fame is a registered historic landmark. Once a star has been added to the Walk, it is considered a part of the historic fabric of the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Because of this, we have never removed a star from the Walk.”
In the resolution passed by the West Hollywood City Council, it says, “Having a ‘star’ on the Walk of Fame is a privilege that is highly sought after by those in the entertainment industry, allowing Mr. Trump to continue to have a star in light of his behavior toward women, particularly in the #timesup and #metoo movements, should not be acceptable in the Hollywood and entertainment industry communities.”
Since the Walk of Fame is the property of the city of Los Angeles, it’s the city that has the final say.
Roommates, what are your thoughts?
