Nathan Bedford Forrest statue vandalized, painted pink
(Forrest was a Confederate general, and a notorious KKK leader.)
The owner plans to leave it pink, since the publicity has drawn more attention to it, and the color makes it stand out better than ever. Even I have to admit that the vandalized statue, despicable as its symbolism is, now looks really cool - and it used to be just another ugly racist symbol! This vandalism really backfired.
