Hollywood Walk Of Fame says there are no plans to remove Donald Trump’s star
Local politicians passed a motion calling for the president’s star to be removed.
There are “no plans” to remove Donald Trump’s star from the Hollywood Walk Of Fame despite calls from local politicians.
The City of West Hollywood voted for the tribute to be removed in protest at the president’s alleged attacks on “minorities, immigrants, Muslims and women”.
But the Hollywood Chamber Of Commerce, which is responsible for the tourist attraction, said the authority does not have jurisdiction over the Walk Of Fame.
Leron Gubler, the president of the organisation, said: “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. The West Hollywood City Council does not have jurisdiction over the Hollywood Walk of Fame.”
City of West Hollywood mayor John Duran said the vote was symbolic.
