Donald Trump’s star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame has been completely destroyed by a vandal who apparently used a pickaxe to smash the star to pieces.
KUTV’s Ron Bird posted a video on Twitter showing the damage.
An anchor for KUTV also posted a picture, saying: “NOW: Someone took a pickax to President Trump’s star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. This isn’t the first time it’s been destroyed. It was also destroyed in October 2016.”
“NBC’s Jonathan Gonzalez reported: ‘Multiple people — including police — tell me a man walked up with a guitar case and pulled out the pickaxe,” the Daily Beast reported. “Then, it’s believed, he called police himself to report it, but left the scene before they got here. Now, he’s nowhere to be found.”
Trump’s star was previously vandalized in 2016, also with a pickaxe.

UPDATE: “A man turned himself in at the Beverly Hills Police Department at about 4:30 a.m. in connection with the destroyed star,” CBS-LA reported.
