Summary: A man is arrested for destoying Donald Trump's Star in holleywood. The man claims that he was going to sell the star and use the money to give to the women who had been sexually harassed. Some reacted with enjoyment and others were upset. Considering a mute button had been drawn on it in the past, it looks as though people will continue to abuse it. This incident began at 6am and no one initially thought it was strange. He says he has no regrets and "he admitted his mistakes... unlike Trump who has not"

Connection: This relates to the Indian Removal Act becuase our country is being forced to vote for two "not so great leaders".  Also, like the Gilded Age, people make Trump look great and excellent on the outside when in reality he's a rude racist.

Questions: 
Why do you think people take the risk of "creating harm" if they know they will get caught?

Why do you think Trump is getting the support and fans he has?

Would you go as far as destroying his star again?

  1. I would personally not go as far as destroying anybody's "Walk of Fame Star". Many people have worked hard for them and if it were you that had a Walk of Fame Star and someone destroyed it, you would not feel good about it either.

  2. I would also not destroy it myself. I do support the man who did it though because Donald trump does not deserve a spot on the holy wood walk of fame.

  3. I think he did go over the top with destroying someone's star but I think it kinda made it worse by having more people feeling bad for him and wanting to support him in some kind of way.

  4. Honestly I believe that this brings more publicity towards Trump making more people aware of his presidential campaign. Destroying his star again would just lead to more complications and unneeded attention if you don't want Trump to win.

  5. I think destroying the star is a bad way of showing their dislike for Trump because it will only bring more attention to him which is what he wants.

    1. Ya I agree with you, if people don't want him to have any support/attention then I wouldn't destroy his star.

  6. The walk of fame star that was destroyed i think is again over the top, if you do not support him, then that is understandable, but I don't believe that it benefited anyone, it just gave him more publicity.

  9. I feel that destroying the star was used for monetary gain to help out people in need, and does not pertain to Trump. If I were in this position I would feel that taking the star was unnecessary in showing my disrespect towards Trump, though.

  10. I think people destroy his star as a way of showing their dislike for him, however I don't believe it is the best way to show your disdain for Trump. I also agree with everyone else that it's just bringing more attention to Trump.

  12. I feel that destroying the star is a way for people to create awareness towards Trump. People feel that nowadays, you need to cause harm to be publicized, on the other hand, we can be civilized and vote on who we think is best instead of destroying each other. Destruction is not a part of America.

  13. I think people do crazy things to get attention of their opinion. They want to portray their hate for Trump clearly so that people would say "wow". I think Trump gets his suppoters because they want someone radical. Throughout history, our country has improved but at a slower rate than expected. However, maybe these Trump supporters think that this crazy candidate can change things quickly because he has nothing to lose. I would not destroy the star again because it does not affect the elections, I would rather spend time on why Trump is a bad candidate.

  14. I dont think i would have destroyed his star but i see why the man destroyed it. I think the man was just trying to make a point by ruining his star.

  15. It's just bringing more attention to Trump which is what he wants for his campaign.

  16. I feel as if destroying the star was a bad move, instead he should've maybe started a fundraiser for the sexually harrased.

  17. I think trump is getting so much support because he is appealing to a certain kind of audience that can see past his mistakes and look at his good side. I believe that even his good side is not good enough for president and clearly the person who destroyed his star agrees with me. I wouldn't destroy the star though because that has nothing to do with the race.

  18. I think that the destruction of his star was really extreme and I agree with Illiana and how the destruction of his star will only bringing him more attention.

  19. I can see the reasoning behind the destruction of Donald Trump's Hollywood star. However, I believe that it was a little extreme especially since the star has no connection to the presidential election. Only so much can be done to prevent incidents like this since there is so much debate about the two candidates.

  20. I believe that destroying his star is sending out a message about what people feel about him

  21. I don't think he should have a star on the walk of fame or whatever it's called because I feel like he isn't some sort of super famous guy who did tremendous things. He is just a super rich man, and he probably bought himself that star just because he could. I'm not sure his star should have been destroyed, however it should not be there either.

  22. I think destroying the star is trying to send a message, how people are public about disliking Trump. Personally I would not destroy the star, because then Trump is getting more press time, which he could use for his benefit.

  23. I think Trump has supporters because people actually agree with his opinions. I wouldn't destroy his star because personally it doesn't send a strong message to me. Trump probably could care less if someone ruined his star.

  24. I think people destroying his star is to show him the deep hatred they have for him. I think while violence is never the answer,the fact that people are doing this really says something about how much they care.

  25. I think destroying his star is a sign that people don't believe in what he is trying to do for america,also that Donald Trump has supporters because some believe in his opinions

  26. I think destroying Trump's star shows that people actually care about the future for the U.S. and what Trump believes in won't be beneficial for us as a country. Personally, I wouldn't destroy his star because then that would just bring more attention to him and his campaign. Also because it wouldn't affect the elections whatsoever.

  27. Destroying the star was not necessarily the best method in conveying how the man felt about Trump. However, if the reason for destroying the star was to help the women who had been sexually harassed, then I believe that this act is justified.

  28. I think people take the risk of "creating harm" due to taking their anger out by taking certain actions upon themselves without caring about what the consequences will be. I think Trump is getting the support and fans that he has due to all of the attention he has been getting. However, I do think that he's getting negative attention. Personally, I wouldn't go as far as destroying his star, because all that does is add more fuel to the fire. I think that there are many other alternative options, and ways around expressing how you feel. The guy could have started a protest for example, instead of breaking his star. When you really think about it, the guy was destroying something materialistic, and not something sentimental. Trump has enough money to get a new star either way.

  29. I think destroying his star shows how people feel about him. I would probably destroy his star again.

  30. I think people risk being caught because they don't support the cause of these leaders and want them to stop at any cost. People like money, he has money and people think money can solve any problem. I wouldn't go as far as destroying something, but if I had a say in certain situations I would give my input on it.

  31. I think he is getting more fame because people hate him so much that go to the extreme to show it. by doing that Donald Trump is getting more attention which is making him more famous.

  32. I think people are rebelling against Trump to receive attention more than trying to send a message. They want to put it on social media and try to make themselves look cool that they're vandalizing things with Trumps name on it. I wouldn't go as far as destroying a star because I'm sure he's earned it and that's something special to Los Angles and the star walk.

  33. I think that people are creating harm to show that their hate for trump, even thought they get they don´t care because they have pride in themselves for hating trump.
