People Are Taking Their Anger At Donald Trump Out On His Defenseless Walk Of Fame Star
It hasn’t been a good stretch for GOP frontrunner Donald Trump. First, his campaign manager was charged with battery over an incident at a campaign event in Jupiter, Fla. Now, it looks like his campaign’s messaging is having a negative toll on his businesses. Also suffering because of his campaign? The Donald’s poor Hollywood Walk of Fame star. Tourists and Angelenos, animals and humans have all taken time out of their days to let the actual, literal star know how they REALLY feel about Trump.
People were going OFF on his Walk of Fame star less than a month into Trump’s presidential bid.

Pero like, if Spiderman is doing then it can’t be that wrong, right?
And it’s gotten worse/better! Both humans and animals have started using the star as a toilet.

This little pooch was among the first faces of the “Anti-Trump Star” movement and he seems pretty proud of himself. ?
Before you knew it, everyone just had to leave Trump a little fecal reminder.

And it’s not just poop that’s being left behind.

There is so much piss and sh*t landing on the star that it’s starting to smell like a New York subway stop.
I didn't even know Trump had a star on the Walk of Fame, but we discovered it this weekend… covered in urine. pic.twitter.com/bTTu0FvXuj

But it’s not just bodily waste! Some people are also resorting to old-school vandalism.

Clearly, the people have a lot they want to say and they think the star is more receptive to criticism than the man.
Even groups are getting in on the action. #SquadGoals
A message from my Mexican and Colombian friends…

One vandal showed that they just want to silence the noise around the GOP frontrunner.

It’s gotten so bad that the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce thought about removing the star.
— Marc Cota-Robles (@abc7marccr) April 5, 2016
They ultimately decided to leave it.
The real question, now, is whether the same people who’ve made the effort and taken the risk to deface the star *will actually come out to vote.*
