Report: President Obama Cancels Hollywood Visit

(Los Angeles, CA) — President Obama is reportedly scrapping his plans to drop in on Hollywood during his visit to the Los Angeles area Wednesday. TMZ.com cites law enforcement sources who say Los Angeles Police Department notified its Hollywood division Tuesday afternoon to stand down after the Secret Service called to say the President would no longer be coming to Hollywood. The President was reportedly scheduled to visit the El Capitan Theatre at 3:00 pm Wednesday. He earlier canceled an appearance on ABC’s “Jimmy Kimmel Live,” which tapes right next door to the theater.

The President is scheduled to attend several fundraisers in California this week, including one hosted by “Scandal” creator Shonda Rhimes and the show’s star Kerry Washington on Wednesday.
