George Floyd Statue Vandalized in New York City


The George Floyd statue that found its new home in New York’s Union Square has been vandalized, according to the New York Police Department (NYPD). The department said the statue of Floyd’s head, which is nearly six feet tall and made of African mahogany plywood and coated in bronze metallic paint, was damaged with grey paint. Monuments dedicated to Representative John Lewis and Breonna Taylor — that were also unveiled Friday (Oct. 1) in Union Square — were left untouched.
