Pro-Trump artists strike back at the destruction of his Walk of Fame star

Street Artist Covers Hollywood Walk of Fame with 50 Trump Stars

This week, the West Hollywood City Council voted unanimously to completely remove Trump's star, citing the president's alleged mistreatment of women as justification.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, while The Faction worked to place the vinyl laminate Trump stars on the Walk, they made sure to keep the US president's name covered so as not to raise the ire of onlookers.

The group said a "young and anonymous entrepreneur" put down the $1,000 (€872.50) to have the stars printed on sheets of floor vinyl for the project.

An anonymous street artist fought back against those trying to vandalize President Trump's star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame by creating multiple fake stars overnight.

The star has been vandalised a number of times over the past few years - most recently by a man with a pickaxe late last month.

The star, of course, has been a means for the populace to register their disgust with the sitting President/America.

"Look this whole politics has turned into a circus and it's back and forth, we get trapped into playing their games of yelling back and forth and symbolic gestures, I'm into real work". "We thought Trump Derangement Syndrome was a joke, but I'm pretty sure it's real", the artist added. A video posted to Twitter by a user identified as The Faction showed crews dressed in hard hats and bright yellow vests putting the vinyl stars on the sidewalk. An employee with Ripley's Believe It or Not! told the publication that they peeled the stars off in fear of further vandalism and damage to their property, referencing July's incident that left Trump's star in shambles. Following the act the West Hollywood City Council voted to recommend doing away with the star because of Trump's "disturbing treatment of women and other actions", reports Mashable.
