Bob Marley’s star on the famous Hollywood Walk of Fame was recently vandalised and will require a hefty sum to be repaired.

The damage to the star was reportedly discovered on Monday.

Ana Martinez of the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce is quoted by NBC Los Angeles as saying “It had been pounded on with what appears to be a sledgehammer or something heavy like that, totally destroying it.”

“This is considered vandalism to a State Historic Landmark,” she said. “It will be repaired by the Hollywood Historic Trust and will cost nearly $3,000 to repair it,” she also stated.

The star was placed in 2001, approximately twenty years after the iconic reggae artiste’s death.

Martinez said the star will be repaired on Wednesday.
