City of West Hollywood votes to remove Drumpf "Walk of Fame" star

Unfortunately, it's not their call.

[www.cnn.com]

The resolution to request the removal of Trump's star's was unanimously adopted by the West Hollywood City Council but is not legally binding as the city 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. When one belittles and attacks minorities, immigrants, Muslims, people with disabilities or women -- the honor no longer exists," he told CNN.

Duran said the council had never previously asked for a star to be removed: "Never have we intruded into our neighboring city's business like this. But the circumstances compelled us to make an exception to the rule."

...The Hollywood Chamber of Commerce, which does have jurisdiction over the iconic tourist attraction, said Trump's star was safe for the time being.

"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," President Leron Gubler said.

If it is within their power, they should turn that area into a mini dog walk.

I wonder if the city could declare it a public nuisance?

The star isn't going to hurt anybody. His star is officially a distraction. The Walk of Fame is not in West Hollywood at all. If you start a precedent then you're going to open the door to more of this type of thing. then they're going to start removing Stars based on the historical attitudes of the earlier inductees. The Walk of Fame is a fun tourist attraction and if the people who are upset about Donald Trump being president hadn't messed around and not fully supported Hillary Clinton then they need to just shut up. They need to do the one thing that can f---ing do and vote.
