Trump’s Star on Walk of Fame Destroyed by Incredible Hulk – Pickax From Yosemite Sam?

FILE - This July 25, 2018, file photo, shows Donald Trump's star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame that was vandalized in Los Angeles. I has since been replaced. The star was previously vandalized in 2016 and similarly replaced. Actor and comedian Bill Cosby's star on the Walk of Fame, just down the block from Trump's on Hollywood Boulevard, was vandalized by someone who scrawled the words "serial rapist" with a marker pen sometime over the Labor Day weekend. It was discovered early Monday morning, Sept. 3, 2018, and has since been cleaned. Cosby was convicted in Philadelphia this year of aggravated indecent assault on a former Temple University employee.

Creativity among vandals on Hollywood Boulevard are at their lowest levels since quite possibly ever. With bars closed, restaurants only allowing indoor dining, and theaters, sporting events, nightclubs, museums and theme parks all shuttered for months, entertainment in Los Angeles now consists of damaging Donald Trumps star on the iconic Walk of Fame.

It happened again early Friday morning, according to the LAPD. The first documented defacing occurred when Trump was just a candidate in February 2016. Thats when a swastika was spray painted on it. In July of 2018, and another criminal genius destroyed it with a pickax. 

There were efforts to slow down or maybe even stop this type of thing. Back in August of 2018, just days after the infamous pickax attack, the West Hollywood City Council unanimously passed a resolution to have Trumps star removed. But, you know how hard it is to get government on any level to agree and work together. The Hollywood Walk of Fame refused to remove it.

The good news, I guess, is there are people who still actually go to the Walk of Fame on Hollywood Blvd, since there is essentially no tourism in Southern California. The most recent vandal was dressed in an Incredible Hulk costume. No arrests have been made, and the “super zero” who actually did this should hope LAPD has better things to do, because the destruction caused was over $5,000, which constitutes felony charges.
