Leftist protesters continue to find new ways to deface every aspect of American culture, particularly anything involving historic white figures, but … Elvis Presley?
Don’t be cruel.
Vandals defaced part of The King’s estate in Memphis, Graceland, where visitors have written their own messages to the deceased singer over the years, only the new graffiti predictably read, “Black Lives Matter” and “Defund the Police.”
The slogans were spray-painted in black and orange on the stone wall surrounding Elvis’ mansion, a Memphis landmark and huge tourist attraction that has become nearly like a shrine, reported the Memphis Commercial Appeal.
“Abolish ICE” and “F–k Trump” were also among the by-now well-known sentiments sprayed on the wall, covering up many of the hundreds of tributes that had been handwritten by visiting fans.
The damage occurred between Aug. 31 and Sept. 1, and by the next day workers with power-wash equipment were removing the slogans, according to the Commercial Appeal.
A Graceland spokesman declined to comment on the vandalism.
Another Memphis landmark, historic concert venue the Levitt Shell, was defaced with similar graffiti, including “Eat the Rich” and “Defund MPD [Memphis Police Department].” The open-air stage in Overton Park was where Presley made his first paid appearance on July 30, 1954.
