The May Day Mural by Shepard Fairey after someone tagged the shit out of it.

On my way home from a show tonight, I walked past Shepard Fairey’s May Day mural to see if Paul Richard’s  destruction from yesterday had been removed.  The answer to my question was yes.  But at least Richard’s “improvement” to the wall was kind of cool and was at least funny.  I was disgusted to find that someone (or some people) have tagged the shit out of the wall and it’s really ugly!  What is wrong with people.  There are a million walls to deface in New York and they go and pick on one of the coolest looking ones.  Idiots!
