A giant block long street mural painted this weekend in New York City sent an angry message to the New York governor and the mayor of the Big Apple – written in yellow it said “F–k Cuomo and de Blasio.”
The New York Post reported the mural appeared at around 1am on Saturday morning and was similar to other city-endorsed murals supporting the Black Lives Matter.
The blunt message was created during an annual block party that also served as a “small business owner protest” over Governor Cuomo and Mayor de Blasio’s leadership during the coronavirus pandemic that left many New York businesses devastated with the ongoing restrictions on gatherings and indoor dining.
“A few partygoers got the idea to paint in huge [letters, using] yellow paint with rollers on North 15th, ‘F–k Cuomo and de Blasio,’” an unidentified attendee said Sunday. “The party continued. Everyone took photos. It was a big hit. The crowds cheered, even the cops chuckled.”
We love beautiful artwork

However while the city protected the BLM murals, the latest painting was covered up by the Department of Transportation in less than 24 hours.
“They told the partygoers it came from up top and they were told the sign said ‘F–k the police,’” the unidentified attendee reported.
According to Fox News, the street art was written in the style of city-sanctioned projects reading “Black Lives Matter”that popped up during the summer protests, including one outside of Manhattan’s Trump Tower, which de Blasio was seen personally helping create and which also has become a vandalism magnet.
