Yet another leftist vandal has gone after President Donald Trump’s star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

Plastic Jesus, a British self-described “street artist,” targeted President Trump’s Walk of Fame star on Wednesday by placing prison bars on top of the star.

In his tweet announcing the move, he also included the hashtag “#ImpeachTrump.”

The vandal told the Huffington Post, “There have been calls to jail Trump since the day he was elected, and today he was certainly put behind bars.”

“Although it was very quickly damaged by a Trump supporter trying to remove it, the bars did appear to be stuck fast and were there several hours later ― to the amusement of thousands of passing tourists,” he added.

Leftists have been celebrating the vandalism on Twitter ever since Plastic Jesus revealed it.

“He should get used to bars. Even the people who put this over his hideous star know his future,” said one Twitter user.

“I am walking on Hollywood Walk of Fame. Trump’s star is still here. People are pointing at it and laugh, dance on it, give it the finger, all sorts of stuff,” another said, adding laughing emojis.

Conservatives, meanwhile, have been rolling their eyes at the action.

“Well, unlike Obama, at least President Trump has a star on the Hollywood walk of fame … Oh, too soon?” wrote one Twitter.

“Too bad Hillary Clinton doesn’t have a star. Hopefully, she will have the real version of the bars!” joked a user on Facebook.

Another said, “Grow up. Go get a life.”

This is far from the first time Trump’s star on the Walk of Fame has been attacked — even by Plastic Jesus. The same year Trump won the presidency, Plastic Jesus built a wall around the star to signify the president’s proposed U.S.-Mexico border.

The president’s star has also been destroyed on multiple occasions, most recently this summer by a vandal with a pickax. The perpetrator, Mikel Clay, was charged with felony vandalism for his act. The star was also destroyed by a sledgehammer in October 2016, a month before Trump was elected president.

Someone, moreover, painted a swastika over it in February 2016.

On top of this, actor Jack Black felt the need to insult Trump at his own Walk of Fame star ceremony this week. The comedic actor could not merely enjoy the fact that he was being honored. Instead, he felt the need to call the president a “piece of s***” during his speech at the ceremony.

President Trump has had a star on the Walk of Fame since 2007 due to his work on “The Apprentice” and his involvement with the Miss Universe pageant.
