A man was caught on video throwing red paint on the Black Lives Matter mural which was painted on the street directly in front of Trump Tower.
The footage was captured early Monday. He covered his face, but he was still captured on video dumping red paint on the mural just days after it was completed. He doesn't appear to be wearing gloves and he leaves the can on the street and flees the scene.

This had been repainted by late Monday afternoon. Mayor Bill de Blasio shared a photo of the mural and boasted it had already been fixed.
To whoever vandalized our mural on 5th Avenue: nice try. @NYC_DOT has already fixed it.

While New York City is infested with crime right now, at least Mayor Bill de Blasio has this mural to be proud of.
