With protestors around the world taking down statues of confederate soldiers and blatant racists in a show of solidarity with the Black Lives Matter movement, it was only a matter of time before racists answered accordingly and unfortunately they just did.
According to the report a white man was caught spray painting “White Lives Matter” across the base of the statue and “WLM” across the pedestals underneath as well.
When asked why he was violating the property with blatantly anti-Black Lives Matter rhetoric, the vandal of course denied it was because he was racist.
Unfortunately racist white folk may feel the urge to continue this kind of nonsense so don’t be surprised if more statues of Black men and women receive similar treatment if not worst.
Police are investigating the incident but who knows what will come of it if Ashe Statue Defaced With “White Lives Matter” F*ckery
