VIDEO: BLM Mural Outside Trump Tower Vandalized with Red Paint

The BLM mural right outside Trump Tower has been vandalized with red paint.

The person who dumped red paint on it was captured on video.


NYPost reports Mayor Bill de Blasio’s giant Black Lives Matter mural outside Trump Tower is already getting dumped on.

An unidentified man walked up to the giant mural outside the Midtown skyscraper and poured red paint on the bright yellow letters shortly after noon Monday, then ran off before cops showed up to survey the damage.

“I knew it was going to happen — there’s all this racist s–t going on,” construction worker Billy McCabe told The Post. “The mural shouldn’t have been done right in front of Trump Tower.”

The mural, announced by de Blasio earlier this month, has already become a flashpoint for face-offs between pro- and anti-Trump forces — including an ugly back-and-forth on Saturday.

De Blasio commissioned the mural last month, and on Thursday he was jeered by protesters as he helped paint the mural with first lady Chirlane McCray and the Rev. Al Sharpton.

Police said the assailant who vandalized the massive message Monday walked up Fifth Avenue at 12:13 p.m. wearing a black shirt and a black hat, dumped the paint, then ran down 56th Street, police said.

The blotch of paint, dumped between “Black” and “Lives,” was smeared over much of the mural by passing traffic.
