Trump's Hollywood Walk of Fame Defaced Over Weekend at Gay Pride #ResistMarch

Monday Jun 12, 2017

As thousands took to the street over the weekend in Los Angeles for the city's Pride parade, which was re-branded this year as #ResistMarch, a number of demonstrators made a point to visit Donald Trump's star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, where they paid homage to the president's sidewalk monument by defacing it with stickers.

According to a report in Trump-friendly online publication Breitbart, Trump's star was photographed Sunday morning covered with stickers that ran the gamut from "Resist Homophobia" to "No! Drive out Pence/Trump fascist regime!"

Breitbart also noted that the former TV reality personality's star on the walk has been vandalized a number of times since his inauguration. Last month, a golden toilet with the message "Take a Trump" was placed on the billionaire's star.

Trump received his star on the walk ten years ago for his work on the "Miss Universe Pageant" and "The Apprentice."

According to AP, the annual LA Gay Pride Parade, which was rebranded #ResistMarcch pulled tens of thousands of Angelenos into the streets to carry rainbow flags and protest the Trump Administration.

The all-star roster of speakers also included some heavy hitting politicians including U.S. Reps. Nancy Pelosi, Adam Schiff and Maxine Waters.

Waters led the crowd in rousing chants of "impeach 45!"

She said "we're going to take our country back from him," and told the marchers that they have the strength, the courage, and the power to do it.
