    The Hollywood Chamber of Commerce didn't immediately respond to BuzzFeed News' request for comment.

    The Hollywood Chamber of Commerce issued the following statement to BuzzFeed News: "The Hollywood Walk of Fame is an institution celebrating the positive contributions of the inductees.

The star is being cleaned up at this time."
