BREAKING: HOLLYWOOD VOTES TO REMOVE TRUMP’S WALK OF FAME STAR
The Hollywood Walk of Fame is supposed to be something to honor achievement in film and television, but liberals have wanted to turn it into a literal battle ground.
Liberals have this horrible tendency of being mad at things all of a sudden. Like the whole situation with the anthem kneeling, their issues with police and any other thing that they want to make into an issue they only got mad about Trump’s star the second he ran for office.
However, their priorities are messed up and in grand fashion.
In 2015, according to The Hollywood Reporter, “there were widespread calls for the removal of Bill Cosby’s star from the Walk of Fame amid multiple sexual assault claims leveled against the comedian.” What happened at the time? Not a whole lot.
The president of the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce, responsible for administering the Walk of Fame, told THR that “the chamber did not remove stars over public backlash and cited historical landmark status.” There weren’t any locales calling for the star to be removed in any official way.
Nothing, in other words, happened.
Fast forward to 2018, where Donald Trump’s star on the Walk of Fame has become a target of anti-conservative protests.
All of this is because of Donald Trump’s political opinions, mind you, but this is apparently worse than what Bill Cosby did — at least to members of the West Hollywood City Council.
On Monday, the City Council passed a resolution that urged the Los Angeles City Council and the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce to remove Trump’s star, the first move to permanently erase the president from the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
“The City Council will consider adopting a resolution urging the Los Angeles City Council and Hollywood Chamber of Commerce to remove President Donald J. Trump’s star from the Hollywood Walk of Fame, due to 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,” the agenda item read.
It passed unanimously.
“The staff report for the resolution lists numerous reasons for the matter, including the separation of children from their parents at the border, the denial of the impacts from climate change on the world, Trump’s treatment of transgendered individuals and the denial of findings from the intelligence community of Russian interference in the 2016 election, among others,” THR reported.
Curiously, the West Hollywood City Council didn’t do a whole heck of a lot back during the Cosby scandal. Then again, it might not particularly matter, given the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce’s reaction back in 2015.
“The Hollywood Walk of Fame is a registered historic landmark,” Hollywood Chamber of Commerce CEO Leron Gubler said during the Cosby scandal.
“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.”
We’ll certainly see how true that is in the coming weeks.
