LIVE LOOK IN: Vandals Alter Iconic Hollywood Sign

untitled-1

LOS ANGELES, CA – The Pranksters have won again.

Just days after the NFL’s regular season ended, it seems as if football fans everywhere are reminding uber-confident Cowboys fans that they haven’t been to a Super Bowl in over a decade.

On Tuesday, what’s believed to be a lone vandal managed to change the iconic sign overlooking Los Angeles early Sunday to read “Cowboys Suck,” said L.A. Police Officer Christopher Garcia, who works in the agency’s security service division.

The vandal, who police suspect is a male, a football fan, and likely in good physical shape used custom made lettering almost identical to the one that have stood for decades to replace the letters reading ‘Hollywood.’

The vandal was caught on security-camera footage between midnight and 2 p.m. local time, but police can’t tell his race or height because it was dark and raining, Garcia said. “He left a note reading, “It was either this, “Dez Dropped It” or “The Warriors Blew A 3-1 Lead.”

Estevan Montemayor, a spokesman for Los Angeles City Councilman David Ryu, whose district includes the Hollywood sign, had earlier promised the iconic sign would be restored to its normal state.”

“This is almost as embarassing for the park service in charge of monitoring the sign  than it was for Mark Sanchez completing his passed to the defense thinking he was still on the Eagles Sunday,” Montemayor said Sunday morning.

There are sensors at the sign that trigger an alarm for police, but because the sensors are only in certain areas of the letters, it’s possible to avoid them. There’s a road accessible to the public by foot and car behind the sign.”

We believe this person came from behind the sign,” Garcia said.

Betsy Isroelit with the Hollywood Sign Trust told CNN that the last time the sign was vandalized to read “Hollyweed” was in 1976.

  3. Rei Dalio, the founder of the Bridgewater Joint Fund, known as the “father of the hedge fund,” said that capitalism is no longer applicable to most Americans. He said that the widening gap between the rich and the poor is creating a turbulent environment that has a disturbing resemblance to the economic and social unrest in the 1930s.
