"I’m sorry I even have to say this — I don’t want to even have to ask this — please, please don’t pickax my star, OK, guys?" Yankovic said in a speech, to laughter from the audience. 


"I mean, I know it’s all the rage these days, but that’s not cool," he said.

"Unless at some point in the future I do something unfathomably monstrous and evil, in which case sure, fine, go ahead, makes sense," he added. "But anything short of that, please limit yourself to spitting and urinating, OK? Have some class, people." 

Trump's star was destroyed in July by a man using a pickax, the second time the star has been vandalized recently. The suspect, Austin Clay, is expected to be arraigned and charged with one felony count of vandalism, the Los Angeles Times reported on Aug. 15.

Clay could face a maximum sentence of three years in jail if convicted. He has pleaded not guilty to the charges. 

The star was also marked with spray paint and hit with a sledgehammer in 2016. 

Earlier this month, the West Hollywood City Council voted to have Trump's star removed.

"Having a 'star' on the Walk of Fame is a privilege that is highly sought after by those in the entertainment industry, allowing Mr. Trump to continue to have a star in light of his behavior toward women, particularly in the #timesup and #metoo movements, should not be acceptable in the Hollywood and entertainment industry communities,” the council’s resolution read

Trump received the star in 2007 for his role on NBC's "The Apprentice."
