NEW YORK — The yellow Black Lives Matter mural along Fifth Avenue in front of the Trump Tower has been vandalized — again.
Four people were taken into police custody for the Friday afternoon vandalism, police said.
Large sweeping splatters of bright blue stained the yellow block letters in the word “Black” after a woman wearing a rainbow flag kicked over the can of paint in anger, NBC 4 New York reported.
The drama began with an argument between opposing groups of people outside of 725 Fifth Ave. Friday afternoon, according to the TV outlet.
The Midtown mural had just undergone facelift after a man on Monday poured red paint over the new street art, police said.
Cops released surveillance footage of the first incident earlier this week, which shows a man in a black ball cap, t-shirt, shorts and sunglasses dousing the “V” in “Lives” before fleeing the scene.
No arrests have been made in that incident.
