A street artist said he put Donald Trump’s star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame behind bars because of “calls to jail Trump since the day he was elected.”
Street artist Plastic Jesus said he affixed the bars on Wednesday using instant-drying “industrial-strength double-sided sticky tape,” according to HuffPost. He claimed his protest-art was “intended to be humorous.”
“I wanted them to stay down but didn’t want a bill for thousands of dollars to repair the footpath,” Plastic Jesus said in an email to HuffPost.
He also noted that a Trump supporter failed to remove the bars, “to the amusement of … passing tourists.
Plastic Jesus’s protest art previously rose to viral fame when the artist constructed a miniaturized wall around Trump’s star in August.
Trump’s star has been vandalized numerous times since he was elected. In July, a man carrying a pickax in a guitar case pulverized the star.
