The selfie-friendly wall at 8221 Melrose Ave. is ubiquitous on social media. Wednesday, it was the scene of some vulgar graffiti.
LA’s famed Pink Wall is no longer just pink. Someone painted “Go ***k your selfie” on it overnight. Is it graffiti or a deeper statement? Hmmm... #pinkwall #selfie #vandalism #graffiti pic.twitter.com/589x1XXzHg— Rob Hayes (@abc7robhayes) September 12, 2018
The normally pristine pink wall was scrawled with a spray-painted message: "Go f--- ur selfie." The word "thrash" was also spray-painted along the bottom.
A street artist known as Thrashbird later claimed responsibility for the vandalism.
Later Wednesday, painters covered over the graffiti with a fresh coat of pink paint.
