James Otis, 52, of West Hollywood, Calif., is the man captured on videotape, dressed as a Los Angeles Department of Transportation worker, and beating Trump’s star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame with a pickax last week, until it was severely chipped and unreadable.
Today, Otis offered a press conference for the news media and the world’s most powerful man attended the meeting to show the activist and an heir to the Otis Elevator Company fortune, his support.
In addition to being a self described “non-violent activist,” Otis is the CEO of the Otis Lambert Financial Group LLC, which raises capital for real estate and financial services projects.
In 2009, Otis sold a collection of Mahatma Gandhi‘s possessions for $1.8 million, so we don’t think reimbursing Trump’s $30,000 Hollywood star would be too much of a problem!
Although Diegodiego does not condone violence and destruction of property, the Mayan Star agrees with the millionaire and his beliefs to show solidarity for the women who had accused the Republican nominee of sexual misconduct.
The Hollywood Chamber of Commerce pointed out that the damage caused by the “non-violent activist” was estimated at $2,500. The Hollywood Chamber of Commerce has already called a repair crew to fix the star, which would take a week. The felony charge could see the 52-year-old spend over three years in jail and fork out a fine of over $10,000 if found guilty.
