Artist Paints Over His LeBron James Mural After Fans Repeatedly Vandalize It

Congratulations Lakers fans, you played yourselves! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Lakers fans in the City of Angels have officially proved that they, too, along with New York Knicks fans, do not deserve nice things.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Just weeks after the greatest player in the world, LeBron James, agreed to take his talents to Los Angeles, Laker fans vandalized a mural that celebrated his arrival.

⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Artist Jonas Never painted the mural last week, which featured James in a Lakers jersey with words, “King of LA,” written across the top. However, some took offense to the declaration and vandalized the painting, adding their own messages, like, “No King,” “We don’t want you.”

As a result, Never returned to make some changes. After he cleaned up the piece, he removed the word “of,” leaving it to read, “The King.”

But, the alterations did not last, as it was vandalized, once again, prompting the artist to paint over it, all together.

“I don’t know if it’s LeBron haters or Kobe fans or just someone who wants attention,” Never said, adding that he created a similar dedication for Kobe Bryant a few years ago. But, “people were very quick to forget that one.”

Who do you think vandalized the LeBron mural? Laker fans, Kobe Fans or LeBron haters?
