Artist Has To Paint Over LeBron Mural In L.A. Thanks To Vandals

 

A Los Angeles-based artist named Jonas Never has painted over a mural he created of LeBron James in a Lakers jersey thanks to multiple instances of vandalism. 

According to ESPN, critics first spray-painted "We Don't Want You," "No King" and "3-6" over the mural, which was on the wall of a Venice barbecue restaurant; later, someone splashed yellow paint on it. 

Among other things, critics apparently thought the mural's tagline "King of L.A." denigrates retired Lakers star Kobe Bryant. 

"I thought I had learned a long time ago to never touch religion or politics," Never told ESPN. "I guess it is never touch religion, politics or anyone against Kobe."
