Hollywood Sign Briefly Read 'HOLLYBOOB'

Hollywood Sign Briefly Read 'HOLLYBOOB'”

The World Series flasher was back at it again this week when she and five others got arrested shortly after police said they altered the "w" and "d" of the Hollywood sign to make the famous landmark read "Hollyboob".

According to the Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD), surveillance footage caught one person dressed in all black sneaking up to the sign around 3 a.m. and spending about an hour and a half transforming the O's to E's by two pieces of black trap with graphic of anti-nuclear war and love, Xinhua news agency reported.

The arrestees were not publicly identified and could not be immediately reached for comment Monday.

Our sources say the group - which we've learned includes model Julia Rose - told cops they did this to raise breast cancer awareness. but they will also be cited for trespassing before they're released.

Trust chairman Mark Panatier said that altering the sign is wrong no matter the cause, and added: "It's unfortunate that such an important icon for the city of LA is not being appreciated". They are facing trespassing charges.

Park rangers quickly took the covers off the sign's letters.

The sign has been changed before.

In 1987, some Caltech students changed it to read the name of their University.

Steve Alper, 54, a dentist who lives down the hill and owns the vacant Mulholland property where the arrests were made, said he was on his way to grab some lunch when he looked out the window and saw the "HOLLYBOOB" lettering.

The incident is far from the first time the landmark has been modified - having been edited on three separate occasions by marijuana-loving locals to read "Hollyweed".
