Six people were arrested after altering the Hollywood sign so it read ‘Hollyboob’.
Police in Los Angeles revealed that five men and one woman climbed the hills surrounding the landmark to make the changes, although the alleged perpetrators claim was a breast cancer awareness message.
LAPD Captain Steve Lurie tweeted: “A few hours ago, a group attempted to vandalise 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.”
Lurie later revealed that the group had been released after being charged with misdemeanour trespassing.
He added: “There’s no vandalism, because the sign wasn’t damaged.”
