Many Hollywood stars have marked their place in our nation's history through the Los Angelos monument, The Walk of Fame. Hosting close to 2,500 stars, the walk commemorates those who have gifted the entertainment industry since the idea of the monument was volunteered in 1953. Though not famous for his work in music or movies like other star-holders, President Trump was awarded to him in 2007 for his work on the Miss Universe Pageant. Though the Hollywood Star placed to honor Donald Trump is no a stranger to vandalism, the occasional sledgehammer or pickax, there have been talks of having the star completely removed. The West Hollywood City Council has urged Los Angels City Council and the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce to remove the star after an unanimous vote earlier this week.
Though voted out, it is hard to say whether the star will actually be removed. “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,” said Leron Gubler, the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce president and CEO.
Council members John D’Amico and Lindsey Horvath released a statement describing why the vote to remove the star was approved, declaring it is because of POTUS's because of 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.”
Though approved by the West Hollywood City Council, because the Walk of Fame is located in Los Angelos, the LA City Council will have the last say.
What do you think? Should we remove our POTUS's star? Or should we keep it in place to honor the tradition of those that have been recognized for their work before Trump? Leave a comment down below!
