A mural of George Floyd in his hometown of Houston was vandalized with a racist message this week, police said – the third time the artwork has been defaced since its creation following Floyd’s killing last Memorial Day.

Police Chief Troy Finner said Thursday “some knucklehead” defaced the mural, which shows an image of Floyd on a colorful background alongside the words “I can’t breathe.”

“I don’t know what their motivation is, if it’s hate or whatever,” Finner said, adding, “Let me tell you something, and I want everybody to understand – ignorant people with bad hearts and bad motivations, do not give them the power.”

The mural was defaced with a racial slur. Previously, it was vandalized with “KKK” written over Floyd’s face.
