Donald Trump’s Hollywood Walk of Fame star has once again been severely vandalized, Los Angeles police have confirmed.
At 5:55 a.m. PST on Friday morning, officers responded to a call about the vandalism and took a report at the scene, a spokesperson confirmed. He said the police department could not say how much damage estimated had been caused.
Celebrity media TMZ reported that a man disguised as the Incredible Hulk had taken a pickaxe from the star, “destroying her beyond recognition.” Pictures show that the president’s name has been almost completely removed from the sidewalk, which is made of terrazzo clay and brass. The LAPD could not confirm whether the star was destroyed by the Incredible Hulk.
The destruction comes hours after Trump announced on Twitter that he and the first lady had contracted Covid-19. It is not known if the destruction of the star was linked to the new diagnosis.
This is not the first time that anti-Trump sentiment has been expressed against the president’s Hollywood star. He has been degraded numerous times since taking office, while supporters frequently attempt to clean him up and clean up the damage. There was another pickax incident in 2018, a hammer destroyed it in 2016 and it was covered in slogans related to Black Lives Matter in June 2020. An artist has already placed a miniature wall around him to protest against Trump’s immigration policies.
The Hollywood Chamber of Commerce, which administers the Walk of Stars, said any vandalized star is replaced by the Hollywood Historic Trust, the non-profit, non-partisan group that manages them.
“When people are mad at one of our award winners, we hope they would project their anger in a more positive way than vandalizing a California state monument,” said Rana Ghadban, executive director of the Chamber. of business. “Our democracy is based on respect for the law. People can make a real difference by voting, not by destroying public property. “
