John Wayne Airport in California’s Orange County is the subject of a potential name change spearheaded by democratic politicians due to the Hollywood icon’s racist views.

The airport was renamed to honour the actor, who lived nearby, after he died in 1979.

Now the Democratic Party of Orange Country has passed an emergency resolution calling for the airport to revert back to its original name of Orange County Airport.

The resolution includes statements which “condemns John Wayne’s racist and bigoted statements,” calling them “white supremacist, anti-LGBT and anti-Indigenous”.
