Fake Trump Stars Appear on Hollywood Walk of Fame

Mark Hamill and Carrie Fisher

The remains of President Donald Trump's star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame on July 25, 2018 in Hollywood, California.

The anonymous creator of the fake stars and friends who helped paste them down, calling themselves "The Faction", told THR they spent about $1,000 on the fake stars, which they printed on sheets of floor vinyl.

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.

A member of the cleaning crew tasked with maintaining the Walk of Fame told The Hollywood Reporter that about 50 stars were found early Thursday.

"He got the captaincy and played very well, but Mourinho will have noticed the line and there will always be a response, because there always is".


Because the Walk of Fame, which holds 2,500 stars, is the property of the City of Los Angeles, the city has the final decision.

The Hollywood Reporter noted that the star-installation crew kept the stars covered until they were all secured in place, so that spectators would not catch on to what was happening. The artist said he was motivated by the West Hollywood vote and the repeated vandalism of Mr. Trump's star.

"We didn't want to have what happened to the old star here".

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

Woods slid his lag putt by the hole, then missed a short comeback putt for par. "Got off to a hot start", Koepka said. Koepka closed with a two-shot lead over Adam Scott , with three more players at 9 under separating Koepka from Woods.


"To maintain a level sidewalk I assume all the other stars displayed will now be given the same character reviews and background checks to determine if their stars too deserve mutilation and banishment", said Geraldo Rivera, a television personality.

It comes after West Hollywood City Council unanimously voted in favour of permanently removing the US President's star - awarded to him in 2007 in recognition of his days as host of The Apprentice US.

In another post they responded to the vandalism, adding that if Trump's star was tampered with again, they would install a "never ending stream of stars".
