The Black Lives Matter mural painted outside Trump Tower in midtown Manhattan has been vandalized for at least the fourth time.

In the latest incident, Mark David Hutt, a 32-year-old resident of Rochester, New York, tossed white paint over part of the stencil and smeared it with his hands, according to the New York Police Department. Hutt was arrested and charged with criminal mischief.

Whilst the NYPD doesn’t track the number of times the mural has been defaced, three separate incidents have previously been reported. The mural, which lies outside the Trump Organization’s headquarters, was first vandalized about four days after it was painted on July 9. In that incident, red paint was used paint over V in “Lives.”

Donald Trump has called the words “Black Lives Matter” a “symbol of hate”. In a tweet before the sign was approved by New York Mayor Bill de Blasio, Trump said a “big, expensive, yellow Black Lives Matter sign” would be “denigrating [to] this luxury Avenue.”

The mayor responded: “Here’s what you don’t understand: Black people BUILT 5th Ave and so much of this nation. Your ‘luxury’ came from THEIR labor, for which they have never been justly compensated. We are honoring them. The fact that you see it as denigrating your street is the definition of racism.”
