President Donald Trump’s star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame has been defaced for the second time in six months.
According to TMZ, an as-yet-unidentified vandal used a black marker to write “F*ck Trump” on the star over the weekend.
In October, Los Angeles man James Otis disguised himself as a construction worker and took a pick-ax to Trump’s star in a pre-dawn incident that was caught on camera. The 53-year-old, who described himself as a “Bernie Democrat,” later told Deadline Hollywood that he was willing to go to jail for his crime.
The star was destroyed entirely; James reached a plea deal in February that included no jail time. He was instead ordered to pay $700 to the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce, which maintains the famous strip on Sunset Boulevard, and another $3,700 to the Hollywood Historic Trust, though the cost to install a new star reportedly reached around $30,000.
The Los Angeles Police Department had no further details on the identity of the latest vandal, TMZ reported.
