Street Artist Covers Hollywood Walk of Fame with 50 Trump Stars

Trumpstars1

If you were strolling through Hollywood Boulevard recently, you may have noticed President Donald Trump's Walk Of Fame star magically multiplied by dozens of times. Later that month a vandal nearly completely destroyed the star using a pick-axe, and in August the West Hollywood City Council voted in favor of a motion calling for the permanent removal of the president's star, citing "his 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".

Despite Mayor Garcetti's calls, the West Hollywood City Council is still petitioning the city of Los Angeles to get rid of the symbol.

He said they printed stars on floor vinyl, and covered the stars while they were being installed in order to avoid being attacked by any detractors. However, thanks to the work of a conservative street artist and a team of merry star placers, faux versions of the star are now occupying empty spaces on the famed walk.

The West Hollywood City Council on Monday unanimously approved a resolution seeking the removal of Trump's star.

Mr. Trump's star sits next to the one honoring actor Kevin Spacey, whose career has been derailed by multiple accusations of sexual misconduct. Spacey apologized to Rapp for any "inappropriate drunken behavior", in a Twitter post past year.

Zimbabwe: Opposition challenges election result in court
The MDC reported that its foreign lawyers had initially been denied entry into the Constitutional Court on work permit grounds. Justice Minister Ziyambi Ziyambi told Reuters Sunday's inauguration "will no longer happen" until the case is finalised.

During the process, the crew initially placed the vinyl stars with a cover to withhold the name, in a bid to avoid any violent onlookers.

A member of the cleaning service on the Walk of Fame who discovered the stars early Thursday morning told the Hollywood Reporter they "looked pretty real".

One of the artists spoke anonymously to the Hollywood Reporter about how and why they did it.

While the artist asserted that the collection of stars "could last there for 10 years" if no one made a decision to remove them, an employee of Ripley's Believe It or Not! told the outlet that they were taken off due to a concern that vandalism would happen again.
