Donald Trump’s star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame has been smashed to pieces with a pickaxe by a man who reportedly called the police afterward.
“Multiple people—including police—tell me a man walked up with a guitar case and pulled out the pick axe. Then, it’s believed, he called police himself to report it, but left the scene before they got here,” said NBC LA’s Jonathan Gonzalez in his report.
Then he tweeted a picture of the messy rubble that was formerly Trump’s star:
So this just happened again… somebody used a pick axe to destroy Donald Trump's star on the Walk of Fame. Still trying to learn more, but we know it's been vandalized multiple times, just never on this level. @NBCLA 📸: Victor Park/Loudlabs pic.twitter.com/lzq7YrsSRV

This is the second time someone will be destroying the star with a pickaxe. Trump received the star in 2007.
In October 2016, James Lambert Otis used a pickaxe and sledgehammer to deface the star. Otis said he was doing it in support of women who had accused Trump of sexual assault. He eventually was charged with felony vandalism. Later, in 2017, someone defaced it by writing “Fuck Trump” on the star in black marker.
Now, it has been reduced to complete rubble.
Trump had yet to react to this as at press time.
