California City Council Calls For Trump Walk of Fame Star to Be Removed
The council doesn't actually have jurisdiction over the star.
After Trump’s star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame was vandalized, residents are now calling for the star’s permanent removal.
The West Hollywood City Council voted Monday night for the removal of the star. The city council passed the resolution unanimously, citing Trump’s “attacks” on “minorities, immigrants” and other groups, according to reports.
The resolution, however, doesn’t mean the star will actually be removed as the council has no jurisdiction over the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Mayor John Duran said the vote was symbolic.
"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,” Duran told CNN. “When one belittles and attacks minorities, immigrants, Muslims, people with disabilities or women -- the honor no longer exists.”
The Hollywood Chamber of Commerce, which does have jurisdiction over the iconic tourist attraction, said Trump's star will stay in place.
A man allegedly ruined the star with a pickax on July 25 and he was charged with vandalism on Monday.
