Vandals have defaced a Pulse memorial mural on the walls of local LGBTQ+ aid organization The Center on Mills Avenue in Orlando, Florida, likely the work of white supremacists.
A poster on Reddit’s r/Orlando forum noticed the sticker had been placed recently right in the center of the mural, covering the Pulse logo. A member of the Orlando Weekly staff also saw the vandalized mural independently.
The sticker, which has since been removed as of Thursday afternoon, bears identifying information for misleadingly-named group the Patriot Front, identified by the Southern Poverty Law Center as a “white nationalist hate group.”
Additionally shitty and no-doubt-related news came from the Center’s Facebook page that their phone lines had been cut yesterday, that all but put them out of commission.
If you want to make a donation to support the Center’s mission to promote and empower the LGBT community, their online donation page is still working just fine.
