Glendale man charged with vandalizing Trump star on Hollywood Walk of Fame

Glendale man charged with vandalizing Trump star on Hollywood Walk of Fame 2 West Hollywood City Council members want Donald Trump's star off Hollywood Walk of Fame

The five-member city council approved a proposal put forth by West Hollywood Mayor Pro Tempore John D'Amico and Councilwoman Lindsey Horvath, who called for the removal of the star, U.S. media report.

West Hollywood City Council has unanimously chose to remove US President Donald Trump's star from the Los Angeles' Walk of Fame.

Donald Trump receives his Hollywood Walk of Fame star in 2007. If passed, the resolution would be the first step to permanently remove Trump's star - but not because it has been vandalized so many times.

The WeHo City Council meeting is scheduled for 6 p.m.

Earning a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame is an honor. The resolution cites all manner of grievances against POTUS, including his record on women, transgender individuals, immigration, Russian interference in the 2016 election, climate change, etc.

The Hollywood Chamber of Commerce released a statement after the most recent vandalism of Trump's star on July 25, saying it hopes people "would project their anger in more positive ways".

The planned rocket launches will mark a major milestone for NASA. "I think I probably did it better", Behnken said. Glover, a former Navy commander and test pilot, was also among the 2013 astronaut class.


Let's just be honest, the Hollywood Walk of Fame has always played fast and loose with the "Fame" part.

Trump's star has since been repaired to its original state.

"Allowing Mr. Trump to continue to have a star in light of his behavior toward women, particularly in the #TimesUp, and #MeToo movements, should not be acceptable in the Hollywood and entertainment industry communities", the council added.

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". A street artist constructed a tiny wall around Trump's star in July 2016, referencing the wall Trump wants at the border.

Austin Mikel Clay, 24, was charged with one count of felony vandalism on Monday for allegedly destroying the star with a pickax in that incident two weeks ago. The star recognized Trump for his work on the TV reality show The Apprentice. It's unclear whether he has a lawyer.
