Trump’s Hollywood Walk of Fame Star put behind prison bars in latest stunt against president’s plaque

Donald Trump’s Hollywood Walk of Fame star was temporary locked up.

In the latest stunt against the US President’s plaque, a street artist laid prison bars on top of Trump’s star saying at least for now ‘the infamous star is caged’.

The street artist, who goes by Plastic Jesus, was caught on video wearing a black hoodie as he placed the bars on top of the plaque and ran away.

The British and Los Angeles-based artist says he used instant-drying, industrial strength, double-sided sticky tape to secure the bars.

Plastic Jesus says the stunt shows Trump should pay the price if he’s guilty of colluding with Russia in the 2016 presidential election.

The artist tweeted: ‘Today I put @realDonaldTrump behind bars.’

‘There have been calls to jail Trump since the day he was elected, and today he was certainly put behind bars,’ the artist said to Huffington Post.

‘At least his now infamous star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame was caged,’ he added.

However his art installation didn’t last long as a Trump supporter damaged it.

‘Although it was very quickly damaged by a Trump supporter trying to remove it the bars did appear to be stuck fast and were there several hours later ― to the amusement of thousands of passing tourists,’ he added.

The bars were removed and the star was returned to its normal appearance later, according to CBS.

Trump’s star was originally installed in 2007 commending his work for the Miss Universe pageant, however the plaque has faced repeated attacks by protesters during his time in office as President.

In 2016, the artist surrounded Trump’s star with a six-inch wall, barbed wire and a tiny American flag as a protest to Trump’s call for a wall to be built on the U.S. border with Mexico.

In July Trump’s star was replaced after a protester attacked it with a pickaxe, utterly destroying it and smashing in into pieces.

Austin Clay, 24, is accused of vandalism for the pickaxe stunt but has denied the charges – which carry a $10,000 fine and up to a three year jail sentence if convicted.

He was caught on camera raising the axe high above his head before thundering it to the floor.
