Kyle Holbrook's George Floyd mural in Overtown had been vandalized.
The artist restored his painting at the corner of Northwest 1st Avenue and 16th Street.
“We live in America, and the great thing about it is, you can have different views,” Holbrook said. “But if your view is hate, you never win.”
Holbrook painted the mural in memory of Floyd and touched up his work this May on the anniversary of Floyd’s death.
But this week the words “death is 4ever” were plastered over Floyd’s face, and X marks were painted on his eyes and forehead.
Holbrook, took an hour to remove the damage,
“I mean, honestly, this is the perfect example of what a loser does,” he said.
Miami police have launched an investigation into the vandalism.
