According to a report from the New York Times, the council members have requested their counterparts in the City of Los Angeles, responsible for managing the public sidewalk tourist attraction, as well as the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce, which looks after who receives a star, to remove Trump’s star.

The council members proposed several reasons for removing the President’s star. One of the major reasons that the council has shown related to his boasting about sexually assaulting women and getting away with it because of his celebrity status.

His alleged behavior in the light of the #MeToo and #TimesUp movements are also being shown as probable reasons for the removal of his honor from the Hollywood Boulevard.

Moreover, the council has also listed his actions taken as the President of the U.S., including his now-reversed decision of separating immigrant parents from their children under a ‘zero-tolerance’ border enforcement policy as well as U.S.’s withdrawal from the Paris climate accord.

According to the City of West Hollywood’s, “Having a ‘star’ on the Walk of Fame is a privilege that is highly sought after by those in the entertainment industry.”

However, allowing Trump to have his star on the Hollywood Boulevard despite his “behavior toward women” should not be acceptable in the Hollywood as well as the entertainment industry.

Leron Gubler, the president of the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce, told the group’s executive committee to discuss West Hollywood’s resolution. However, he also mentioned that the city lacks “jurisdiction over the Hollywood Walk of Fame.”

He declared in an statement that there are no plans of removing “any stars” from the Hollywood Walk of Fame, the online source reported.

President Trump received his star on the Hollywood Boulevard in 2007. However, it is currently covered and under repair after a man destroyed it with a pickax last month.

Another report from the New York Times informed that the police have made an arrest in the light of the incident. The suspect has been identified as 24-year-old Austin Clay who has been held on bail of $20,000 on the charge of felony vandalism.
