The West Hollywood City Council has unanimously passed a resolution that urges the Los Angeles City Council and Hollywood Chamber of Commerce to permanently remove Donald Trump’s Walk of Fame star.

The resolution was backed at a council meeting on Monday evening, with the agenda item citing Trump’s “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 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 item stated.

The vote comes just weeks after Trump’s star was destroyed for the second time, this time by a pickaxe-wielding 24-year-old man.

However, as the star isn’t in West Hollywood, the final decision rests with the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce, who have previously refused past efforts to remove the stars of disgraced actors including Bill Cosby and Kevin Spacey – a fact photographer Robert Lang explored in his latest project, Walk of Shame.
