In other news from New York, a statue honoring George Floyd was vandalized Sunday — just two days after its unveiling ceremony. Police footage shows an unidentified white man on a skateboard throwing gray paint on the bronze statue. Floyd’s sculpture is being displayed at Union Square alongside two others honoring late Congressmember John Lewis and Breonna Taylor. Busts of the three were created by artist Chris Carnabuci. The statue of Floyd had previously been vandalized just five days after it was first unveiled on Juneteenth in Flatbush, Brooklyn. It was marked with a logo linked to the white supremacist group Patriot Front.
