A large yellow X marks the spot.
Donald Trump's Hollywood Walk of Fame star has been defaced with a large yellow X.
It is unclear when the star, located at 6801 Hollywood Blvd., was defaced or what was used to make the large yellow X. One reporter shared a photo.

The marking won't be on the star for long, however, as the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce will be cleaning it shortly.
“We regret that someone would deface a historic landmark," said Leron Gubler, Hollywood Chamber of Commerce president and CEO in a statement to The Hollywood Reporter. "People who have a disagreement with Donald Trump should not take it out on the Walk of Fame. The star will be restored to its original condition as soon as possible."
Trump received his star in January 2007, according to the Walk of Fame website.
The mogul and current GOP presidential candidate is not the first celebrity to have his star vandalized.
In December, disgraced comedian Bill Cosby's star was defaced, with the word "rapist' written on it after numerous women accused the comedian of sexual assault.
