When it was discovered that the star was vandalised Ana Martinez tweeted out a photo of several apparent dents that were made on the star, which is located in the 7000 block of Hollywood Boulevard.
“Why would anyone do this to Bob Marley’s star? Help me understand. The Walk of Fame is a State-registered historic landmark! Disrespectful,” she said on Twitter. “This is considered vandalism to a State Historic Landmark,” she continued.
