Donald Trump’s star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame has been destroyed with a pickaxe.

Reports suggest that, on Wednesday morning, the perpetrator – later named as Austin Clay – concealed the pickaxe in a guitar case before smashing up the star, calling the police and later turning himself over to the Beverly Hill police, according to CNN.

It’s not the first time the star has been used by Trump protestors to vent their anger. In 2016 a protestor used a jackhammer to remove Trump’s name from the star, while later that year, artist Plastic Jesus built a border wall around the star, complete with razor wire and ‘keep out’ signs.
