Hollywood Walk of Fame covered in Trump stars after vandalism

The artist said it was partly in response to the star being destroyed by critics of the president, and also in response to the vote by the Hollywood City Council to remove the star.

The artist added he was motivated by the recent destruction of Trump's star, as well as a vote from the West Hollywood City Council to recommend the removal of the president's star over his statements and alleged treatment toward women.

The City of Los Angeles owns the property, so they will have the final decision on whether or not Trump's star will be removed. A member of the cleaning service that handles the daily graffiti that is placed on the Walk of Fame told the Hollywood Reporter, "We started at 5 o'clock in the morning and we've found about 50 stars".

The artist, who wished to remain anonymous, told the Hollywood Reporter, "Rip up the president's Walk of Fame star or try to have it removed - like you're the mayor of West Hollywood or something - and 30 more will pop up".

In 2018, among all adults, 77 percent had used the internet "on the go" using a mobile phone, smartphone, laptop, tablet or handheld device.

The stickers were partially funded by a "young and anonymous entrepreneur".

An unnamed conservative street artist took credit for the move, according to The Hollywood Reporter, and was behind adhering a number of laminated, vinyl stars to the iconic sidewalk.

They spent $1,000 on the stars, which were printed on sheets of floor vinyl with adhesive backing.

In what they probably wanted to be a formidable message, The Faction tweeted, "Keep taking down the @realDonaldTrump star, and we will further spread Trump Derangement Syndrome by installing a never ending stream of stars".

"Look this whole politics has turned into a circus and it's back and forth, we get trapped into playing their games of yelling back and forth and symbolic gestures, I'm into real work". A Ripley's Believe It or Not! employee said that they started peeling off the stickers because they were anxious about angry protestors destroying their property.
