Hollywood’s Walk of Fame vandalized with dozens of Donald Trump stars

Hollywood’s Walk of Fame vandalized with dozens of Donald Trump stars

We regret to inform you that the streets of Hollywood were cursed with multiple replicas of Trump’s star on Thursday. 

The president’s Walk of Fame star was destroyed on last month by a guy wielding a pickaxe, who was later bailed out by the guy who also destroyed Trump’s star with a pickaxe two years earlier. In response, the West Hollywood City Council unanimously voted to recommend getting rid of the star altogether on Tuesday because of Trump’s “disturbing treatment of women and other actions,” though Trump’s star isn’t even located in the city limits of West Hollywood. 

In a tweet announcing the city council’s symbolic vote, West Hollywood’s mayor John Duran added “#horcruxdestroyed.”

Overnight, dozens of Trump stars appeared on the Walk of Fame. The anonymous artist warned the Hollywood Reporter, “Rip up the president’s Walk of Fame star or try to have it removed — like you’re the mayor of West Hollywood or something — and 30 more will pop up.” 

An account that calls itself “The Faction” claimed responsibility for the installation. 

“Take down his star, and we will descend upon you with 30 fresh new stars,” the account tweeted. “We are MAGA Legion.”

Right, OK.

The Faction also tweeted a video of their crew putting the installation together early in the morning. Wearing neon vests and hard hats, the crew surrounded actual stars with realistic vinyl stickers that looked like Trump’s. 

The stickers were partially funded by a “young and anonymous entrepreneur.” The Faction is a self described “rogue right-wing street artist,” according to their Instagram bio, and vows to “shower you Useful Idiots in glorious memes to manifest your Trump Derangement Syndrome demons.” They collaborate with Sabo, another conservative street artist who tries to troll Hollywood with “provocative” art.

In what they probably wanted to be a formidable message, The Faction tweeted, “Keep taking down the @realDonaldTrump star, and we will further spread Trump Derangement Syndrome by installing a never ending stream of stars.” 

While “installing” the fake stars, the crew kept Trump’s name covered until the last minute so bystanders wouldn’t attack them. 

“I didn’t want to get hit over the head from behind,” the artist told the Hollywood Reporter. “We thought Trump Derangement Syndrome was a joke, but I’m pretty sure it’s real.” 

Trump Derangement System, according to Urban Dictionary, is a “mental condition in which a person has been driven effectively insane due to their dislike of Donald Trump, to the point at which they will abandon all logic and reason.” CNN calls it the “knee-jerk opposition from liberals (and Never Trumpers) to anything and everything Trump does.” In other words: If you disagree with everything Trump says, a Trump supporter might diagnose you with TDS.

Although The Faction’s video showed mildly interested onlookers, not everyone was amused by the stunt. A Ripley’s Believe It or Not! employee said that they started peeling off the stickers because they were worried about angry protestors destroying their property. 

“We didn’t want to have what happened to the old star here,” the employee told the Hollywood Reporter.

A member of the service that cleans graffiti off the Walk of Fame said they found about 50 stars.
