A memorial park in New York dedicated to the late Adam Yauch – MCA – has been vandalised with far right insignia.
Palmetto Playground was renamed the Adam Yauch Playground in 2013, in honour of the Beastie Boys rapper’s life and work.
A few hours ago news broke via Billboard that the park has been defaced with graffiti, including swastikas and messages saying ‘GO TRUMP’.
Images have appeared online, and authorities are working to clear up the vandalism. Adam Yauch – like the rest of the Beastie Boys – was Jewish.
The aftermath of Donald Trump’s election victory has seen a huge spike in hate crimes across the United States.
