Donald Trump’s plan to build a wall between the United States-Mexico border might be a controversial idea, but it has proven an inspiration for protesting artists.
On the day Trump secured the Republican nomination for president, a miniature wall was erected around his star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame on Tuesday.
The tiny 15cm high grey walls topped with razor wire and “keep out” signs went viral on social media, before it was torn down on Wednesday morning.
Hollywood sightseeers 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 addtion to the icon star appeared early Tuesday afternoon, to the amusement of onlookers. There was no word as to who created the humorous installation. However the miniture wall was adorned with "STOP MAKING STUPID PEOPLE FAMOUS" which is believed to be the work of LA Street artist @plasticjesus
