Hollywood Walk of Fame Receives Black Lives Matter Makeover


Empty stars on the Hollywood Walk of Fame got a makeover last Friday. Instead of being adorned with celebrity names, the stars had the names of people killed by police officers. From Tamir Rice to Eric Garner, members of a group by the name of Indecline took matters into their own hands to remember those killed by law enforcement.

According to Sputnik News, the group uploaded a Vimeo and Instagram video that showed exactly how it pulled off its Black Lives Matter mission. In addition to Rice and Garner’s names, other names included Freddie Gray, Michael Brown, Dontre Hamilton, Oscar Grant, Kimani Gray and Aiyana Stanley-Jones.

According to various posts by users on social media, the names have already been removed.

“Just an update, it appears they have been removed. Walked up and down Hollywood and Vine for the past couple hours,” erik_ljung posted on Instagram.

So what’s next for Indecline? Well, a spokesperson told Sputnik it has something in store for Donald Trump.

“We haven’t discussed a plan in regards to returning for more, but are currently in the pre-production phases on something much more elaborate pertaining to Donald Trump,” the spokesperson said.
