1. The iconic Hollywood sign in Los Angeles was vandalized at some point during New Year’s Eve to read “Hollyweed,” kicking off 2017 with a prank.
What the fuck. #hollyweed

2. As one of the most recognizable landmarks in the world, the popular sign is often targeted by vandals, but officials told BuzzFeed News this was one of the most “ambitious” efforts they’ve seen in a long time.
The vandalism was noticed early Sunday morning, and the Los Angeles Police Department has been contacted to investigate, she said.
“Hollyweed has been done in the past,” she said. “It’s not an original idea.”
It was not clear who was behind the “prank,” but recreational pot use was just approved by California voters in November.
Isroelit said the sign is not vandalized often, but the foundation works closely with LAPD to prevent and investigate all incidents.
LAPD did not immediately respond to BuzzFeed News.
Isroelit said she expects the sign to be fixed quickly on Sunday morning.
In the meantime, some people are still getting their kicks.
Time to pack your (dime) bags and move to Hollyweed ?
