A man dressed as a city construction worker used a sledgehammer and pickax to destroy Donald Trump’s star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame early Wednesday, according to a report from Deadline Hollywood.
The website reports that the predawn attack happened at about 5:45 a.m.
The star is no longer recognizable in a photo posted on Twitter by Deadline Hollywood senior editor Dominic Patten, who broke the story.
People have spray-painted it with a swastika and a mute sign. Over the summer an L.A. street artist built a tiny wall around it.
The star was dedicated in January 2007, recognizing Trump’s work on “The Apprentice,” which Trump called an “absolutely amazing” experience at the dedication ceremony.
His wife, Melania, and then-baby son, Barron, also attended.
