The legendary Hollywood sign has been susceptible to trolls who change its letters to something else. Like “Hollyboob,” which according to reports, a group of six recently did.
The group led by influencer model Julia Rose, infamous for being the 2019 World Series flasher, reportedly staged the stunt to raise breast cancer awareness. For all of those who don’t know, Breast Cancer Awareness Month is actually in October.
Rose and her crew draped a tarp marked with a large letter “B” to cover the “W” and adding a dash to the “D” at the end of the sign. The police saw the act in progress and apprehended the six vandals as they made their way down the hill. Since we are talking about private property, public Griffith Park, in which the sign is located, the group will be charged with misdemeanor trespassing.

A few hours ago, a group attempted to vandalize the Hollywood sign. Los Angeles landmarks are precious to those of us @LAPDHollywood and this was way uncool (not to mention the terrain is quite steep & dangerous). Hollywood patrol officers have arrested all six individuals.
