People are trying to erase the 'Hollywood' sign from Google Maps

Google Maps / HOLLYWOOD sign

It's as famous as the Grand Canyon, and just as recognizable as the Great Wall of China. It's common knowledge that tourists flock every year to see the iconic "HOLLYWOOD" sign in California, but what you don't know is that a bitter war has been raging around the sign for years.

A group of people are trying to hide the HOLLYWOOD  sign at all costs from potential tourists. And they're not holding any punches, either.

This group of people is actually the residents that live near and around the famous sign. And they seem to have a pretty good reason for not wanting tourists.

Firstly, there's no easy way to get to the HOLLYWOOD sign. You can't drive up to it, and it's only by hiking the twisty trails on the mountain that you can get close to the sign at all.

But you can forget about the selfies with the sign, even if you do make the hike. That's because you can't access the front of the sign, you can only hike up the back end of the sign.

If it's so difficult to get to, then why do the residents of Los Angeles want to hide the sign so badly? And how in the world are they going to do it?
