Police say graffiti was discovered this morning on the statue and pedestal of the newly put in George Floyd statue in Brooklyn.
The face of the statue was painted black, with graffiti in white lettering that reads “Patriot entrance.us.”
The statue is at present behind barricades and had been lined up.
An identical incident occurred in New Jersey. The statue of George Floyd just lately put in outdoors Newark Metropolis Corridor was discovered defaced with white supremacist graffiti.
The NYPD Hate Crimes unit says it’s investigating the vandalism.
