A mural comprising of George Floyd’s face printed over a $20 bill has now been repainted by a white artist after being defaced by alleged miscreants recently.
The giant mural was reportedly repainted by Jeremie ‘Bacpac’ Franko, right after Floyd’s death, confirmed by local media outlets.
Members from the Black community also went on to add how the giant mural celebrates the acts of violence conducted by white individuals, and also complained about how it failed to show any form of active participation or contribution from those people who related to the Black community.
But on Friday morning, news broke out about how an artist had worked hard to paint the defaced mural with being toned paint.
“I really need to do what white people are not required to do very well and that revolves around giving up the platform,” confirmed the artist named Franko, in regards to painting across her mural.
The mural which is currently located in Phoenix has George Floyd’s face placed over a giant $20 bill, complete with the hashtag that states the prince of black lives, which hangs right above his head.
Moreover, the bill is in reference to the mega counterfeit bill that Floyd had used allegedly, right before he was arrested by cops in Minneapolis, leading to death at the hands of Derek Chauvin. He was recently convicted for all of his murder crimes.
However, the giant mural sparked great outrage when it was recently defaced, prompting authorities to immediately take it down.
According to reports, unidentified individuals had defaced it by boldly printing the word ‘fentanyl’ across George Floyd’s head.Therefore, the white artist thought it was her duty to play an active role and cover it in beige-toned paint on Oak Street.
The artist says that the original intention of creating such a mural in the first place was to begin a conversation in the city and that certainly took place for days.
