Shortly after Donald Trump was named the official Republican presidential candidate on Tuesday at the Republican National Convention in Cleveland, Ohio, a small wall was erected around Trump’s star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in Los Angeles, Calif.
The tiny wall, a mere six inches in height, is still very detailed, featuring barbed wire at the top and small “Keep Out” signs on all four sides. The addition to Trump’s star is, of course, a jab at the politician’s contentious promise to erect a wall that “Mexico will pay for” on the southern border of the U.S., supposedly halting the flow of illegal immigrants into the country.
The wall was constructed by a Los Angeles-based street artist who goes by the moniker Plastic Jesus. This is not the first time that Plastic Jesus has undertaken a controversial art project directed towards the outspoken politician—he is well known on Instagram for his graphic art that encompasses street signs designed to say “No Trump Anytime” and “No Kardashian Anytime.”
Plastic Jesus Instagrammed a photo of the wall with the following caption:
Hollywood sight-seers on the famous walk of fame were confronted with an unusual edition to Trump’s Famous Star. Someone had built a 6” tall grey concrete wall around it. Complete with ‘Keep out’ signs and topped with razor wire. The unofficial addition to the iconic star appeared early Tuesday afternoon, to the amusement of onlookers.
