(AGENDAWATCHDOG) – Donald Trump’s star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame has been unveiled again after it was repeatedly vandalized and boarded up during his presidency.
The newly forged star, which features a TV symbol to celebrate his work on The Apprentice, was laid down Thursday on the iconic boulevard.
The five-pointed brass star sits alongside famous Paramount film executive Y. Frank Freeman and director Irwin Winkler.
Trump’s star was painted over, pickaxed and even drilled into pieces when it became a battleground for political debate during his presidency and 2016 campaign.
It was destroyed by a sledgehammer in 2016, attacked with a pickaxe in 2018 and last October a man dressed as the Incredible Hulk destroyed it with a pickaxe again causing £3,000 worth of damage.
It has also been frequently defaced. Last June, it was famously covered in Black Lives Matter slogans and an artist once placed a miniature wall around it to protest at Trump’s immigration policies.
In another instance, a person put a cage over the sign amid calls for the former president to face jail time for his perceived crimes.
