The Hollywood Chamber of Commerce reacted to Donald Trump’s star being demolished — yet again — by asking those who feel so strongly about the president to vote rather than destroy property.
The latest incident occurred Friday around 5:55 a.m., police said. A felony vandalism report was filed. According to TMZ, the suspect was dressed as the Hulk while he wielded a pickaxe to destroy the star. It has since been replaced.
The marker outside TCL Chinese Theatre has been vandalized and completely destroyed numerous times.
“Any star, which is vandalized or destroyed, no matter which honoree it belongs to will be replaced by the Hollywood Historic Trust, a non-profit, non-partisan group,” Rana Ghadban, president/CEO of the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce said in a statement. “When people are angry with one of our honorees, we would hope that they would project their anger in more positive ways than to vandalize a California State landmark. Our democracy is based on respect for the law. People can make a real difference by voting and not destroying public property.”
The first time Trump’s star was demolished occurred in 2016 when James Lambert Otis was taped destroying the star with a jackhammer and a pickaxe.
Trump’s star will never be removed from the walk of fame as the area is designated a historical landmark. Bill Cosby’s star has also been vandalized a number of times.
