It was in the early hours of Wednesday when a man dressed as a construction worker destroyed The Donald’s star with a sledgehammer and a pick-axe. A man identifying himself as James Otis told several media outlets that he was responsible, saying that he originally wanted to steal and sell the star to pay for the legal fees of Trump’s sexual abuse accusers.
The Hollywood Chamber of Commerce announced yesterday that Trump’s star would be replaced.
