A woman was arrested and charged for defacing the Black Lives Matter mural in front of the Trump Tower in New York City on Wednesday afternoon.
Juliet Germanotta, 38, was arrested and charged with criminal mischief for pouring blue paint on the Black Lives Matter painting in on Fifth Avenue at 3:34 p.m., NYPD Detective Annette Shelton told the Daily Caller News Foundation.
“I can’t condone or support government politicians, political figures who condone violence, condone hate crimes, condone racist, bigot groups like BLM,” Germanotta said in a live Facebook video before pouring blue paint on the mural.
“Like I said, any day someone gives me a bucket of paint is any day that I will be throwin’ paint on this racist, bigot graffiti out here on Fifth Avenue.”
Germanotta was arrested for allegedly vandalizing the mural in a similar manner July 18, New York ABC 7 reported.
Germanotta said in the video that de Blasio should be sued, arrested and charged for bypassing the city’s public art project application to install the Black Lives Matter mural. (RELATED: De Blasio Admits NYC Ignored Its Own Permit Process For Black Lives Matter Murals)
“Operation paint drop, every day someone donates a can of paint, is everyday operation paint drop will continue to happen. Mark my words Bellagio, you are a coward, racist, bigot, you’re a transphobic fuckin’ Nazi,” Germanotta said, using a nickname to refer to de Blasio. “I say fuck you, you can eat my shit and die motherfucker because it’s all lives matter,” Germanotta said.
De Blasio’s office did not respond to the Daily Caller News Foundation’s request for comment.
