Early Wednesday morning, someone took a sledgehammer to Donald Trump’s Hollywood Walk of Fame star and destroyed it. The person claiming responsibility has released a video confession identifying himself, explaining why he did it, and stating that he is not afraid of the consequences he will face.
James Otis, a self-described non-violent activist, used a sledgehammer and a pickaxe as he attempted to completely remove the star bearing Donald Trump’s name on his Hollywood Walk of Fame star. He was only able to remove Trump’s name and the emblem before he fled the scene.
Otis released a video, obtained by TMZ, in which he shares why he tried to destroy Trump’s Hollywood Walk of Fame star. He doesn’t believe Trump deserves the star given the numerous allegations of sexual assault against him. He planned on auctioning the star off on election day and distributing the money to women who, he says, were sexually assaulted by Trump.
He was ultimately unsuccessful in his attempt to remove the star. It is currently being repaired and replaced.
