Donald Trump’s star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame is seen after it was vandalized on Wednesday.

AFP-Jiji LOS ANGELES (AFP-Jiji) — A man with an axe destroyed Donald Trump’s star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame on Wednesday in a video protest over sexual misconduct allegations dogging the Republican presidential candidate.

The protester, dressed in city construction worker overalls, can be seen on footage posted to YouTube and several other websites hacking away the gold lettering and camera logo from the tribute.

Giving his name as James Otis, he calmly explains he is “terribly upset” with 70-year-old Trump, who vigorously denies claims by almost a dozen women that he groped or was sexually aggressive toward them.
