West Hollywood: Trump's Star Out Over "Treatment of Women", Keep Bill Cosby's Star

The Walk of Fame is a joke. On more levels than can be counted. All you have to do is walk through the area to realize that the whole thing is as phony as an actual Hollywood production. And that’s even without contemplating the behind the scenes stuff that explains how these “stars” are set.

So is the sanctimonious seriousness with which the West Hollywood City Council is taking this gimmick. Not to mention its hypocrisy.

West Hollywood City Council has voted “unanimously” to approve a resolution urging Los Angeles City Council and the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce to permanently remove Donald Trump’s Walk of Fame star.

The star, which was unveiled in 2007, has been vandalized numerous times and completely destroyed twice. The most recent destruction came in late July when 24-year-old Austin Mikel Clay allegedly took a pickaxe to it. For his actions, he was booked on felony vandalism and jailed on $20,000 bail. He has since been released.

The council considered the removal of the star at a meeting on Monday evening. The agenda item read: “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” 

Where’s the Bill Cosby resolution?

 The approval of a resolution urging the removal of Trump’s star, however, does not necessarily mean that L.A. City Council and the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce will follow through. In December 2015, 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. Hollywood Chamber of Commerce president and CEO Leron Gubler emailed THR that the chamber did not remove stars over public backlash and cited historical landmark status. 

Gubler stated: “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.”

Raping dozens of women isn’t a problem for Trump-hating lefties who claim to care about the “treatment of women”. Just like Harvey Weinstein did.
