According to Deadline, this isn’t the first time Trump’s star has been defaced since he announced his presidential run and hope to win the White House.
A man identifying himself as James Otis admitted to taking a sledgehammer and pickax to Trump’s star. In a statement to Deadline, Otis said he wanted to remove the star to auction it off on Election Day in order to raise funds for the 11 women who claim that the former Apprentice host sexually assaulted them.
Allegedly, as he worked to remove the star, there were several onlookers.
The Hollywood Chamber of Commerce runs the Walk of Fame program, and numerous stars that are maintained by the Hollywood Historic Trust. At this time, neither has addressed the incident that took place, early on Wednesday.
Donald Trump’s star has been a part of the Walk of Fame for a decade.
