Sort of inevitable, given how this election has gone so far. This act of vandalism was also reported to have been about making a statement about Trump's history of sexual assaults on women.

Donald Trump is no longer a star — at least not in Hollywood.

Trump’s star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame was destroyed Wednesday morning by a man purporting to be a construction worker. Trump's name and the TV logo once emblazoned on the star are no longer visible.

The man used a sledgehammer and pick-ax allegedly in attempt to pluck the star from the ground. He told Deadline, which first reported the encounter, his name is Jamie Otis and that he planned to auction the star to raise money for the women who have accused Trump of having sexually assaulted them over a span of decades.

According to Deadline, Otis began hammering the star around 5:45 a.m. but left before a Los Angeles Police Department cruiser pulled up a half-hour later.
