On Wednesday October 26, Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump’s star in the Hollywood walk of fame. Early on Wednesday morning a man who was later identified as Jamie Otis was wearing what looked like Los Angeles construction gear began destroying the Trump star with a sledgehammer and a pickax.
Otis explained the reasons of actions. According to Otis he did this because “I had four or five family members sexually assaulted, and I’m terribly upset that we have a presidential nominee who’s become sort of a poster child of sexual violence.” Otis also did this to help the 11 women who have accused Trump of sexually assaulting them.
Otis was later arrested by the Los Angeles Police Department. Otis is being held on felony vandalism charge with $20,000-dollar bail. Otis is an heir to the Otis family elevator fortune.
This was not the first attempt on the star. Earlier this year a person sprayed the swastika symbol on the star. Donald Trump’s controversial actions have caused people react of late. This has been the most controversial presidential election that the United States had in years.
