President Trump’s Star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame Was Destroyed
President Trump’s star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame is located at 6803 Hollywood Blvd, near the corner of Highland Avenue. He received the star in 2007 as the host of NBC’s reality series The Apprentice. He wasn’t quite such a controversial pick back then. But since Trump became President, the star has been the target of frequent protests and vandalism.
Per CBS Los Angeles, it’s been destroyed again, this time by a man wielding a pick axe. After demolishing the star, the alleged defacer turned himself in to the police:
Police say the destruction was reported at about 3:30 a.m. Wednesday, and the call was believed to have been made by the man who took a pick ax to the star. All that was left of the star was a jagged hole in the ground, and pieces of concrete and the star were left strewn about the sidewalk by the time police arrived.
Some photographs from the scene:
The star was previously replaced in October of 2016, after a man went full Ghostbusters II and disguised himself as a construction worker, then pretended to be doing authorized street work while bashing it to pieces. In another incident, someone built a miniature wall around the star, in protest of Trump’s immigration policies and his dream of building a wall along the border between the United States and Mexico. So this isn’t the first time this happened, and unless extreme measures are taken, it surely won’t be the last time either.
