LeBron James’ preference to join a Lakers was greeted by many with genuine fad in Los Angeles. Some, though, have remained indifferent in their LeBron loathing and crossed a line in doing so.
Last week, artists Jonas Never and Menso One welcomed LeBron with an implausible picture on a side of Baby Blues BBQ in Venice.

Come Sunday, that picture was vandalized.
Photos circulated on Twitter of a defaced LeBron mural. LeBron’s mouth was spray-painted over in bullion and messages, “We don’t wish you,” “LeFraud,” “No King,” and “3-6” were combined to a mural.

One comment tweeted a video of a apparent desolation (the saved video was prisoner here – NSFW language). Two days ago, a apart Lakers fan comment offering a $300 prerogative to anyone who broken a mural.
This wouldn’t be a initial time a LeBron picture was vandalized either. Notably, LeBron’s Miami Heat picture was defaced in 2014 when he announced that he was returning to a Cavaliers.
Update: The artists waited small time to repair a mural.
Doesn’t demeanour too “ruined” to me… though good try. Considering how high a scribbles were we roughly feel like Kobe did it haha. Either approach we got absolved of a offending “of” #lebronjames #kingjames #lakers #mural
