Robert: West Hollywood requests removal of Donald Trump from the Walk of Fame
The City of West Hollywood would like to impeach U.S. President Donald Trump from the Hollywood Walk of Fame. The council voted unanimously on a resolution that would request the removal of Trump’s star from the iconic Hollywood attraction.
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,” says Mayor John Duran. He also noted that this type of resolution is unique for the council, “Never have we intruded into our neighboring city’s business like this. But the circumstances compelled us to make an exception to the rule.”
While the notion was passed by council, the decision is ultimately up to The Hollywood Chamber of Commerce.”Once we receive a communication from the City of West Hollywood, it will be referred to our Executive Committee for consideration at their next meeting. As of now, there are no plans to remove any stars from the Hollywood Walk of Fame,” said Chamber President Leron Gubler said.
To date, no stars have ever been removed from the Walk of Fame.
