Donald Trump's Hall of Fame Star got vandalized for the second time and authorities aim for the maximum penalty.


Austin Clay, the vandal of Donald Trump’s Walk of Fame star got charged with felony vandalism charges by the DA’s office early in August, later in the month on August 15 the DA’s office tweeted that Austin had pleaded not guilty.

The vandal was of the opinion that he shouldn’t have to face charges because he did what he believed in, and was a rightful and just act and said:

“I think that the repercussions of it were only positive. I only wanted to bring about positive political change.”


On November 7 Austin got sentenced after he pleaded no contest to the act of vandalism. Austin received a 3-year formal probation sentence, 20 days of community labor, and one day in county jail.

The CEO of the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce, Leron Gubler,


“When people are unhappy with one of our honorees, we would hope that they would project their anger in more positive ways than to vandalize a California State landmark. Our democracy is based on respect for the law. People can make a difference by voting and not destroying public property.”

Donald Trump’s star was first unveiled in 2007 and got vandalized prior to this in 2016 with an estimated damage of $2,500.

The institution said in 2015 that they do not remove a star once it’s been added, regardless of what happens after that, no matter how controversial.
