The city of Los Angeles is now being slammed after reports circulated that they purposefully cleared the homeless out of Union Station to make way for the Oscars to move to the new locale.

The annual awards show was forced to change venues due to Covid-19 restrictions.

As The Daily Wire reports:

The city of Los Angeles, California, is facing a backlash, Monday, amid reports it booted dozens of homeless people from the city’s Union Station — and even dismantled an existing homeless encampment — ahead of Sunday night’s Oscars ceremony.

The city also temporarily shut a COVID-19 testing site to accommodate the star-studded awards show, which took place Sunday night, in a hybrid in-person and online format, with celebrities attending in person seated at tables in a makeshift Art Deco ballroom located in Union’s Station’s main hall, rather than at the Dolby Theater, where the ceremony is typically held.

Union Station is a hotbed for homelessness, but city officials reportedly did not want the A-listers attending the relocated Oscars bothered by tents, panhandling, and drug use, according to LA’s Fox affiliate.

“On Sunday, the homeless people, many living in tents near the Union Station building in Downtown LA, were not seen anywhere near the area,” per news outlet Meaww. “According to FOX11, which talked to a person who lived on the street around the area, people like him were allegedly threatened and ordered to leave in the days leading up to the star-studded event.”

The Homeless should not be allowed to set up shelter around the Union station anyways. Okay Mayor and Governor, time to find a better solution for your people who are down and out.

There’s no freaking way they will help the homeless! They have Hollywood on their liberal side and could care less about the people there!
I personally have a total distaste for the elites in CA as I do the Biden Administration!!😡😡

They keep raising taxes for that purpose, but nothing gets done.
One would think those heart bleeding elites would of invited the homeless at least to the fancy parties.

These people are takers just like Biden. They don’t care about the people that got them where they are, the movie goers. Not one of them any more. Not even on TV. Sick people.

Hollywood only cares about illegals, violent black criminals, and rioters. This is how the elite are, just full of hot smelly gas.

Hollywood elite are disgusting hypocrites. Actions speak far more loudly than words. They’re actors after all, so who cares what they have to say. Actions are so revealing!

I thought that idiot/moron Gruesome Newsom homeless policy is prime core for Biden administration and whole country as to how to deal homeless issue. At least that what I hear straight from the horses mouth.

You mean they’re hypocrites? You don’t say. Pelosi won’t let them near her place, they call the police. So much for caring about the down and out and they’ll ignore the defund the police issue too.
