President Donald Trump’s Hollywood Walk of Fame star was vandalized again, this time on Friday morning.
Police responded to around 5:50 a.m. and a vandalism report was taken, according to the LA Police Department.
TMZ reported that the star was destroyed by a person dressed in an Incredible Hulk costume.
The person smashed Trump’s star with a pickaxe hours after the announcement that the president and First lady Melania Trump tested positive for the coronavirus. Trump has since been transferred to Walter Reed National Military Medical Center, just outside of Washington, D.C.
Workers began reconstructing Trump’s star on Friday afternoon after it was destroyed early that morning.
USA Today reported that any vandalized or destroyed star is replaced by the Hollywood Historic Trust.
Since being elected, Trump’s Hollywood star has been vandalized several times with spray paint, a sledgehammer and pickax.
In 2007, the star was dedicated to Trump for his NBC show, “The Apprentice,” and for his work as a producer for the beauty pageant franchises he owned. And in 2018, Comedian George Lopez pretended to urinate on the star using a water bottle.
