Well this sucks. Less than 48 hours after it’s unveiling in Aylesbury, England, a bronze statue of David Bowie was vandalized. The pavement in front of the statue reads “feed the homeless first” and just behind it “RIP DB” was spray painted twice. Some of the paint landed on the base as well.
According to Aylesbury Deputy Mayor Mark Willis, no public money was used for the statue. “It was entirely funded through crowdfunding, by members of the public, myself included. One of the charities I support monthly is Shelter, as homelessness and poverty are absolute scourges on society that need solving.” The irony.
