Donald Trump’s Star On Hollywood Walk Of Fame Defaced Again [EXCLUSIVE]
President Donald Trump‘s star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame is once again getting no respect. The star, which had previously been destroyed by angry voter Jame Lambert Otis, is the now the victim of bountiful graffiti – with epithets, tags and doodles scrawled all over it. The Walk of Fame, which is Los Angeles’ biggest tourist attraction, replaced the previously destroyed star in June.
The star has been repeatedly vandalized in recent years. In 2016, before the Otis incident, someone painted swastika over Trump’s name. Caretakers seem to have given up on keeping Trump’s star clean. Of the 2600-plus stars on the Walk of Fame, Trump’s is the only graffiti-defaced star.
Otis used a pickaxe and sledgehammer to do the damage on Oct. 26, 2016. He was charged with one count of vandalism and plead no contest at his hearing. Otis was sentenced to three years probation and 20 days of work with the California Department of Transportation. He was also required to pay $3,700 to the Hollywood Historic Trust and $700 to the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce for his destruction. Otis could have faced up to three years in prison for his crime.
No one has been charged with graffitiing Trump’s star.
