Hollywood sign changed overnight to read ‘Hollyweed’

HollyweedAbout midnight Sunday, someone changed the landmark Hollywood sign to read “Hollyweed,” CBS Los Angeles reported.

According to CBS:

Sgt. Trudeau of Security Services says the incident unfolded around midnight Sunday after a thrill-seeker climbed the mountain and threw two tarps over the “O’s” to make them appear like “E’s.”

The sign as of 10:45 a.m. had been restored to read, “Hollywood.” It remains unclear who was involved in the incident, which was being investigated as a misdemeanor charge of trespassing, according to police.

The sergeant said police planned to review security footage to identify those responsible. It remains unclear whether authorities plan to release the footage to the public.

It’s not the first time the sign was changed.  According to CBS, it read “Hollyweed” on January 1, 1976.
