The question is why? A disrespectful teenager in Connecticut took it upon herself to not only disrespect the deceased Nipsey Hussle, but his family, community and all who mourned him. The vandal has since been identified by the internet as Kaitlyn Renee, though it remains unclear as to why she decided to deface the painting that was erected shortly after Nipsey’s passing on March 31. Video below surfaced of Renee painting a green outline of a penis and the letters SK on the wall before posing in front of the damage for a selfie video.
The good news is just one day after news spread that a Hartford, Conn. Nipsey Hussle mural was defaced, the image has been restored back to its original state.
On Sunday (April 28), a local teacher and rapper by the name of Joey Batts stepped up to fix the damage, Fox 61 reports. “It was defaced yesterday,” Batts told Fox’s local Hartford affiliate of the damaged Nipsey Hussle tribute. “A couple of people got word of it and I just thought it was best to fix it.”
