The West Hollywood City Council unanimously voted to remove the US President Donald Trump’s Hollywood Walk of Fame star. The move comes after West Hollywood Mayor Pro Tem John D’Amico and Councilwoman Lindsey Horvath urged the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce and the city of Los Angeles to remove the ‘marker’ due to Trump’s “disturbing treatment of women and other actions that did not meet the shared values of West Hollywood, the region, state, and country.”

The decision has created quite some buzz on social media, with many welcoming the move. However, some also wondered whether this move would make any difference to Trump. Here are some of the reaction the announcement garnered:
