The iconic pink wall on the side of the Paul Smith shop on Melrose Avenue was vandalized Wednesday with obscene graffiti.

The selfie-friendly wall at 8221 Melrose Ave. is ubiquitous on social media. Wednesday, it was the scene of some vulgar graffiti.


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.
