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

Several fake stars bearing Donald Trump's name reportedly dotted empty spaces on the Hollywood Walk of Fame on Thursday.

Workers replace the Star of President Donald Trump on the Hollywood Walk of Fame after it was destroyed by a vandal in the early morning hours on July 25, 2018 in Los Angeles, California.

The star has been vandalised a number of times over the past few years - most recently by a man with a pickaxe late last month.

Thursday's star multiplication can be attributed to an anonymous conservative street artist, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The Democrat mayor of Los Angeles is surprisingly against the decision to remove President Trump's star from Hollywood Boulevard. Employee told THR. "Not only would the star be destroyed, but it would damage our property".

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. The artist said he was motivated by the West Hollywood vote and the repeated vandalism of Mr. Trump's star.

In a post on a Twitter, Hamill has suggested that his "Star Wars" co-star, who portrayed Princess Leia in five movies, get his spot.

The star recognized Trump for his work on the TV reality show "The Apprentice".

Austin Clay, 24, was charged with one felony count of vandalism over the destruction. Following the act the West Hollywood City Council voted to recommend doing away with the star because of Trump's "disturbing treatment of women and other actions", reports Mashable.

Trump's star has been vandalized at least twice since 2016, with a pickax as well as being defaced with a reverse swastika.
