A vandal dressed as a construction worker took a sledgehammer to Donald Trump’s star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame early Wednesday morning, Deadline Hollywood is reporting

“The embedded terrazzo and brass star, dedicated in 2007 in recognition of the now-GOP presidential candidate’s days as host of The Apprentice, was smashed to bits, with shrapnel flying everywhere,” the entertainment-news site reported Wednesday, noting that the incident occurred at 5:45 a.m. local time and there were a few bystanders around who witnessed the incident.

According to Deadline Hollywood, the vandal, who identified himself as James Otis, had planned to sell the star at auction and use the proceeds to assist women accusing Mr. Trump of unwanted sexual advances. 

In July, a street artist named Plastic Jesus erected a little wall around Donald Trump’s star on Hollywood’s Walk of Fame. 

“Personally, I’ve got nothing against Donald Trump,” The Huffington Post quoted the artist as saying at the time. “I have everything against his policies and the culture he’s trying to create in America.”
