Street Artist Covers Hollywood Walk of Fame with 50 Trump Stars

Dozens of vinyl stars for Donald Trump were placed on the Hollywood Walk of Fame on Friday Aug. 10 2018

In the video, the artists surrounded the stars belongings to the president's critics, like Rob Reiner and Jimmy Kimmel, with the Trump stickers.

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.

He said he was motivated by the destruction of Trump's star and the recent decision by the West Hollywood City Council to remove his name from the Walk of Fame because of his alleged treatment of women. They spent $1000 in total, according to the Hollywood Reporter.

The crew laminated the vinyl stars and placed them on blank squares on the Walk of Fame, though kept them covered until all were secured into place so that onlookers would not know exactly what was happening. "We thought Trump Derangement Syndrome was a joke, but I'm pretty sure it's real", the artist told THR.

The group, which includes a self-described "Rogue Right Wing street artist," told the "Hollywood Reporter" that the stickers cost $1,000 and were funded by a "young and anonymous entrepreneur".

One Ripley's Believe It or Not! employee said the stars began to be peeled off because "we didn't want to have what happened to the old star here".

Although the city council voted to have the star removed, it was largely a symbolic vote as they have no power to order its removal.

A member of the cleaning service that deals with daily graffiti and vandalism on the Walk of Fame said, "We started at 5 o'clock in the morning and we've found about 50 stars".

Instead of removing the president's star, the Democrat mayor urged Democrats to give up the back-and-forth political attacks and instead focus on practical efforts to take control of the House in the November midterms.
