US–LGBTQ+ activists around the country are livid after it has become apparent that people are driving over the murals they painted on the public street where cars go.
“I can’t believe that people would stoop so low as to literally drive their dirty tires over the beautiful murals we painted on a public street. It’s really a hate crime worse than any we’ve faced,” Super gay mural designer and volunteer Richard N. Butts said.
LGBTQ+ crosswalk murals have been painted in several US cities and have made several thousand people gay or transgender just by walking on them.
“And these bigots just come here and drive all over our mural as if this is some kind of Nazi autobahn,” Butts said.
“It’s so hateful. I just can’t imagine what kind of world where people would drive on our street monuments like this. I mean what kind of monsters would do this?” Butts added
