Calls to remove Did­dy’s Hol­ly­wood Walk of Fame star are grow­ing loud­er amid a series of seri­ous alle­ga­tions against him. How­ev­er, the Hol­ly­wood Cham­ber of Com­merce has con­firmed they have no plans to remove the star, cit­ing a lack of author­i­ty to do so.

A spokesper­son for the Cham­ber told TMZ that they have not dis­cussed remov­ing Did­dy’s star and are pow­er­less to make it dis­ap­pear. While the Cham­ber has the author­i­ty to nom­i­nate and install stars, they are unable to remove them.

This deci­sion comes despite 7 civ­il law­suits alleg­ing sex­u­al assault and oth­er mis­deeds against Did­dy, along with a fed­er­al crim­i­nal investigation.

Sim­i­lar calls to remove stars have been made in the past for oth­er celebri­ties fac­ing con­tro­ver­sy, includ­ing Bill Cos­by and Don­ald Trump. Trump’s star was repeat­ed­ly van­dal­ized but nev­er removed.

Did­dy has vehe­ment­ly denied all alle­ga­tions, ini­tial­ly claim­ing his accusers were moti­vat­ed by mon­ey. How­ev­er, this denial was weak­ened after a video sur­faced fea­tur­ing singer Cassie, who accused Did­dy of phys­i­cal abuse.

Despite the ongo­ing inves­ti­ga­tions and pub­lic pres­sure, Did­dy’s star remains firm­ly plant­ed on the Hol­ly­wood Walk of Fame. 

The Cham­ber’s deci­sion high­lights the com­plex issue of remov­ing his­tor­i­cal mark­ers in the face of con­tro­ver­sy, leav­ing many to ques­tion the role of the Walk of Fame in acknowl­edg­ing indi­vid­u­als who have faced seri­ous allegations.
