Bob Marley's Hollywood star vandalised
The Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD) is currently carrying out an investigation to find the person/persons responsible for vandalising Bob Marley’s star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
The STAR understand that on Monday, dents were discovered on the late reggae singer’s star. A photo of the damage was tweeted out by spokeswoman for the Walk of Fame, Ana Martinez.
CBS has reported Martinez as saying the incident was ‘disrespectful’. “I don’t know what they hit it with. I don’t know why people desecrate historic state landmarks,” she said. “People are disrespectful.”
Martinez disclosed that the star will be repaired by the Hollywood Historic Trust at the cost of nearly US$3,000, and says she hopes that the LAPD catches the vandal.
Marley was posthumously awarded the star in February 2001.
