Hollywood is no fan of Donald Trump and it seems that taking a pickaxe to the once Celebrity Apprentice host's star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame will only get you a slap on the wrist. He has since changed his plea to "no contest", according to the Los Angeles District Attorney's office.

Between then and now a deal was struck between Jackie Lacey's office and Clay's lawyers that will also see the now self-declared vandal pay the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce $9,404.46 for the fix of the Trump star and other restitution. He was sentenced to three years of probation and 20 days of community service and ordered to pay $4,400 for the damage he caused. Clay, 24, reportedly traveled to Trump's star, on Hollywood Boulevard and Highland Avenue in Los Angeles, with his pickaxe inside a guitar case.

"I think that the repercussions of it were only positive", he said.

Otis, who was dressed as a construction worker at the time, said his goal was to remove the star, auction it, and donate any money raised to the women who accused Trump of sexual assault leading up to the presidential election.

The West Hollywood city council approved a motion calling for Donald Trump's star to be removed from the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

Clay took a pickax to Trump's star on Hollywood Boulevard in July.

Instead, just like Clay, the lawyered-up Otis on February 21, 2017 was handed three years of formal probation and 20 days of community work.

About 30 sidewalk stars are awarded to notable entertainers each year by the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce, but they're not exactly gifted.

BuzzFeed noted that Trump's Hollywood star attracts its share of vandals. The Hollywood Chamber of Commerce has condemned the vandalism, but so far refused to remove stars from the walk, saying that regardless of who they represent, they are a part of the history of the area.
