Hollywood to Remove Trump Star From Walk of Fame, Keep Convicted Rapists
The West Hollywood City Council voted unanimously on a resolution to remove President Donald J. Trump’s star from the Hollywood Walk of Fame yesterday.
“West Hollywood City council unanimously passes resolution asking the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce to remove the Donald Trump star on Hollywood Walk of Fame,” said West Hollywood Mayor John Duran on Twitter.
The Hollywood Chamber of Commerce will have to approve Trump’s star removal for it to be officially bar.
“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,” said Leron Gubler, the Chamber’s president and CEO.
Among the stars that will certainly not be removed from Walk of Fame are those belonging to accused pedophile Kevin Spacey, and convicted rapist Bill Cosby.
Apparently, as long as one apologizes, Hollywood has no problem with alleged pedophilia.
“I owe him the sincerest apology for what would have been deeply inappropriate drunken behavior, and I am sorry for the feelings he describes having carried with him all these years,” Spacey said of the accusation.
Cosby has maintained his innocence throughout his arrest and conviction.
The city will also keep magician David Copperfield’s star. Copperfield was accused of sexually assaulting a 17-year-old girl during the height of the #MeToo movement in an incident that allegedly occurred in 1988.
Likewise, actor James Franco’s star will stay, though he’s been accused of sexually exploiting five women.
Outspoken Trump critic ans Star Trek actor George Takei’s star is going nowhere, though he stands accused of sexually assaulting a male model in 1981. Takei denied the allegations.
“The events he describes back in the 1980s simply did not occur, and I do not know why he has claimed them now. I have wracked my brain to ask if I remember Mr. Brunton, and I cannot say I do,” Takei said. “Right now it is a he said / he said situation, over alleged events nearly 40 years ago. But those that know me understand that non-consensual acts are so antithetical to my values and my practices, the very idea that someone would accuse me of this is quite personally painful.”
Tavis Smiley’s star will stay put, too, though he was suspended from his post at PBS for allegedly using his position of power to coerce subordinate employees into sexual activity.
The list of Hollyweird sexual deviants goes on and on.
As long as none of them become the President of the United States – at least as a Republican – their stars on the Walk of Fame should be safe.
