Park rangers removed changes to the Hollywood sign that made it read "Hollyboob."



The sign is protected with gates and sensors and entering the property is considered trespassing.

Trespassers have managed to alter the sign on a few occasions in the past, including changing it to read "Hollyweed" in 2017 and "Holywood" for a visit by the pope in 1987.

In 2016 a YouTube prankster climbed the sign and displayed a banner that declared "I'm back!"
