The Herald reports:
The West Hollywood city council unanimously voted on Monday to remove Donald Trump’s star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in an unprecedented decision.
“West Hollywood City council unanimously passes resolution asking the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce to remove the Donald Trump star on Hollywood Walk of Fame,” Mayor John Duran posted to Twitter following the vote, the Daily Mail reports.
Before passing the motion on Monday, the City Council asked “the Los Angeles City Council and Hollywood Chamber of Commerce to remove President Donald J. Trump’s star from the Hollywood Walk of Fame, due to his 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.”
Trump received his star in 2007. The vote marks an unprecedented move for the city of Los Angeles, which has never removed a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
In 2015, a call to remove Bill Cosby’s star from the Walk of Fame by activists amid a number of sexual assault accusations failed to get the support the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce.
So Cosby has now been convicted of indecent assault but his star remains. What about Kevin Spacey – will his remain also.
Trump is a terrible human being, but this is a bad precedent to start removing stars because they are now a politician you don’t like.
