Donald Trump's Hollywood Walk of Fame Star Mysteriously Multiplies

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

President Donald Trump's star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, which Trump initially received in 2007 for producing the Miss Universe show, has been destroyed multiple times by protesters, most recently on July 25.

To a street artist who calls himself a conservative, this reality became too hard to bear.

However, it seems the anonymous artist's mission may not be over yet.

His effort, however, appears to have been in vain.

A recent vote by the West Hollywood City Council recommended the official removal of Trump's star from the Walk of Fame, though The Hollywood Chamber of Commerce and Los Angeles City Council have not yet weighed in on the proposal. Los Angeles police say a pickax was used in the vandalism.

The move made businesses in the corner of N. Highland Avenue and Hollywood Boulevard fear for their safety.

The artist, who wants to remain anonymous, printed Trump's name on dozens of sheets of adhesive floor vinyl before sticking them randomly onto blank tiles along the sidewalk.

Speaking to the Hollywood Reporter, the artist said, "I didn't want to get hit over the head from behind".

The artist and his crew are known to the world as The Faction. They are also close allies to conservative artist Sabo. They kept the stars covered until all of the copies were in place so as not to raise suspicion.

The stickers were quickly peeled off.

The council said the star must go because of Trump's "disturbing treatment of women and other actions that do not meet the shared values of the City of West Hollywood, the region, state, and country". The employee said they were afraid of vandalism impacting their business.

Numerous stars, though, were peeled off during the day, with some saying that they feared vandalism if the fake stars stayed.

A cleaning service that deals with graffiti and vandalism along the Walk of Fame told THR that it found about "about 50" if the fake Trump stars Thursday morning that "looked pretty real".
