“Black Lives Matter” might be painted on a lot of streets these days, but now there’s a new piece of art in Brooklyn to go along with those large murals.
An equally giant-sized mural appeared Saturday on North 15th Street between Wythe Avenue and Banker Street in Williamsburg, emblazoned with the words “F–k Cuomo and de Blasio“.
An anonymous attendee at an annual party told the New York Post, “A few partygoers got the idea to paint in huge [letters, using] yellow paint with rollers on North 15th, ‘F–k Cuomo and de Blasio,’” the attendee said Sunday, refusing to be identified by name. “The party continued. Everyone took photos.”
The rather bizarre mural has sparked all types of reactions from shock to laughter. One humorous tweet from @AriTeman suggests that the NYPD have narrowed down the list of suspects:
The “art” seemingly came amid criticism of Governor Cuomo and Mayor de Blasio over their leadership during the coronavirus pandemic, with ongoing restrictions on gatherings and indoor dining leaving many New York businesses devastated.
The NYPD confirmed that a criminal mischief complaint had been filed over the incident and that an investigation is ongoing, but did not comment on the claim that cops laughed at the vandalism while doing nothing to stop it.
