President Donald Trump's star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame was defaced again this morning, TMZ reports.
Video obtained by TMZ showed the vandal walking up to the star located near the Hollywood Wax Museum around 3:40 a.m. early Wednesday morning. The man can be seen kneeling down and applying a coat of black paint to the star. The suspect then spray paints 'Putins Bitch' across the star located near Highland and Victory Boulevard in white spray paint. A second person appeared to be taking photos or video of the suspect in action.
The vandalism comes just days after a redacted version of special counsel Robert Mueller's report on Russian intereference in the 2016 presidential election was released to the public. The spray paint appears to reference Trump's relationship with Russian president Vladimir Putin.
However, the paint didn't last long as crews from the Hollywood Historic Trust came out to clean up the star, although some spots of black paint remain.
This isn't the first time the star has been vandalized. It's also been jackhammered, painted, and even ripped out with a pickax. A spokesperson with the Hollywood Historic Trust, which is charged with maintaining and repairing the stars, say they plan on filing a police report. Officials with the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce say they have no plans to remove Trump's star from the Walk of Fame.
