Gee, I don’t think it's vandalism to throw paint on a Black Lives Matter mural. The mural doesn’t belong on a New York street in the first place.
NY Post reports this is the vandal who dumped red paint on a section of the Black Lives Matter mural in front of Trump Tower.Witness Oscar Vela tweeted video Monday that shows the man stroll up to the mural with a can of red paint and dump it over the letter “V” in the word “Lives.”As the man, wearing dark clothing, a black cap and a face mask, runs away, an onlooker can be heard saying, “What’s your name?” and “Run, bastard, run!”
Police said the man dumped the paint around 12:13 p.m., then fled on East 56th Street.
Look what I just witnessed! Ran like a big coward! Very sad! 🤬#nyc #abc7ny pic.twitter.com/3SdzPkslXh— Oscar Vela (@OscarVelaNYC) July 13, 2020
