Petition to Hollywood Chamber of Commerce

Remove Stars Belonging to Abusers and Rapists

In the age of #MeToo, men who assault and abuse people are being held accountable for their actions. Yet the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce still insists on honoring some of the worst offenders in the film industry with stars on their Walk of Fame. Sign and demand that the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce remove stars belonging to rapists and abusers. Among those honored with stars are Bill Cosby, accused of rape by over 60 women, and been convicted on three accounts, and Charlie Sheen, accused of multiple assaults against women. Six allegations of assault and harassment have been surfaced against Brett Ratner, Kevin Spacey has been accused of the same by 15 people and Gig Young murdered his wife – and yet they all have stars on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Even our president has a star in spite of the 22 women who have accused him of sexual assault and misconduct. Millions of tourists visit the walk each year and see stars honoring the careers of people who harassed, assaulted, and killed people. Yet when faced with mounting pressure to remove Bill Cosby’s star, the Chamber of Commerce refused, responding that "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." The Hollywood Chamber of Commerce isn’t respecting history by keeping these stars, it’s endorsing violence. It’s long past time the Hollywood Chamber of Congress removed violent celebrities from the Walk of Fame – add your name and join the campaign to demand better.
