As the controversy surrounding President Donald Trump's star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame continues, some street artists descended onto the walk and plastered sticker versions of Trump's star.

A Twitter account called "The Faction" claimed responsibility for the vandalism, warning that more stars would appear if Trump's namesake is removed.

The West Hollywood City Council may want to permanently remove President Donald Trump's starfrom the Hollywood Walk of Fame, but that isn't stopping dozens of replicas from popping up.

The artist added he was motivated by the recent destruction of Trump's star, as well as a vote from the West Hollywood City Council to recommend the removal of the president's star over his statements and alleged treatment toward women. "Not only would the star be destroyed, but it would damage our property", an employee told THR.

The Hollywood Reporter also notes some of the faux Trump stars have already been peeled up.

TheFaction1776 is believed to be working along with conservative artist Sabo.

Selfie filters now set the tone for plastic surgeries
Sure, maybe you want to take better selfies, but altering your appearance to do so isn't necessarily the best path, experts say. Requests for hair transplants and eyelid surgical procedures have also increased as people seek the ideal selfie.

The group, which includes a self-described "Rogue Right Wing street artist," told the "Hollywood Reporter" that the stickers cost $1,000 and were funded by a "young and anonymous entrepreneur".

"I didn't want to get hit over the head from behind".

"We started at 5 o'clock in the morning and we've found about 50 stars", said a member of the Walk of Fame's cleaning service.

While the artist asserted that the collection of stars "could last there for 10 years" if no one made a decision to remove them, an employee of Ripley's Believe It or Not! told the outlet that they were taken off due to a concern that vandalism would happen again.

Trump's star on the famous sidewalk has been vandalized many times and destroyed twice, most recently July 25 when 24-year-old Austin Mikel Clay was booked on felony vandalism and jailed on a $20,000 bail, the Hollywood Reporter said.
