WeHo City Council To Vote On Removing Trump's Star

Adjust Comment Print

There have been calls to remove Bill Cosby's tribute in the past but it remains even after he was convicted of three counts of aggravated indecent assault. West Hollywood Mayor Pro Tempore John DAmico, who introduced the proposal, thinks the Walk of Fame "needs to do a deep dive into their history" and consider what other stars should be removed, he said in an interview with The Post.

A petition started in 2016 calls for the star to be removed altogether. Meanwhile, Trump's star isn't going anywhere anytime soon.

The most recent defacing of the star.

While the star is not far from West Hollywood, it is not in fact in West Hollywood. The only celebrity to be denied a star on the Walk of Fame was Charlie Chaplin, back in 1956, because of concerns about his sexual morality and his leftwing politics. The only wrinkle is the Council has no jurisdiction over the Walk of Fame.

Patricia Cox, a witness, told CNN affiliate KCAL/KCBS that she saw a man "going to town" on the ground "like it was his business just to be tearing up the ground", she said. Well, majority with the exception of Fox News.

Sometimes, the application warns, "several annual nominations" are required before a nominee is offered star status.

"The answer is no", Gubler said in 2015 in response to inquiries about the Cosby and Trump stars.

But, according to a statement from the Chamber, it's unlikely it will act.

The president's star was vandalised last month.

Despite the incidents of vandalization, the resolution to the city council didn't note the vandalism as a reason to remove the star.

Why does Trump have a star?

Trump's star has been on the famous street since 2007, when Trump was honored for his work on Miss Universe pageants and NBC's long-running business competition show "The Apprentice". For nearly two decades, he co-owned the Miss Universe Organization, which also included the Miss USA and Miss Teen USA pageants.

This availability came about because people can't stop smashing Donald Trump's star. "Not on our radar right now". The star was destroyed with a pickaxe.

The Walk now spans around 15 city blocks in Hollywood.

Gubler noted that once they receive an official communication from the City of West Hollywood, "it will be referred to [their] Executive Committee for consideration at their next meeting".
