Council votes to remove Donald Trump’s Hollywood Walk of Fame star

Push On To Have Trump’s Star Removed From Hollywood Walk Of Fame

A man has been charged in relation to the smashing of United States president Donald Trump's star on the Hollywood Walk Of Fame.

During a meeting held on August 6, West Hollywood City Council made a recommendation to the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce that Trump's star should be removed. It's even been completely destroyed twice - mostly recently in July, when 24-year-old Austin Mikel Clay allegedly took to it it with a pick-axe.

"This is an opportunity for decision-makers to take a stand on their values in support of women", the Council's report reads.

The star of Home Alone 2: Lost In New York has officially lost his place on the Hollywood Walk Of Fame.

The Hollywood Chamber of Commerce has refused past efforts to remove the stars of disgraced actors including Bill Cosby and Kevin Spacey so it looks likely that this latest attempt will end in failure.

Being amongst 2600 others at Hollywood Boulevard and Vine Street, Trump's star was installed to recognise his work with the Miss Universe pagaent. "When people are unhappy with one of our honorees, we would hope that they would project their anger in more positive ways than to vandalize a California State landmark".

"Because of this, we have never removed a star from the Walk", he added.

The Hollywood Walk of Fame could be strong with the Force, if Star Wars actor Mark Hamill has his way.

Among the other reasons listed on the resolution include Trump's policies on climate change, the GOP's abhorrent removal of immigrant children from their parents, and Trump's treatment of transgender persons.

The council staff presented papers on the subject that stated a number of "disturbing" incidents of Trump's behaviour towards women during the 2016 election campaign. It's unclear whether he has a lawyer.

If convicted as charged, Clay could face a possible maximum sentence of three years in jail, prosecutors said.

Otis pleaded no contest to the felony.
