Mural Honoring Parkland Shooting Victims Is Defaced in Miami's Wynwood Neighborhood

A mural honoring Marjory Stoneman Douglas shooting victim Joaquin "Guac" Oliver was defaced today in Miami's Wynwood neighborhood.

The mural, which was created by Up Art Studio and stands on the corner of NW 23rd Street and NW First Place in the Miami arts district, shows Oliver leading a march alongside notable historical figures such as Abraham Lincoln, Jimi Hendrix, Jim Morrison, and outspoken MSD shooting survivor Emma González. Silhouettes of protesters hold up signs reading, "End gun violence" and "We call B.S.," quoting the viral speech González made in front of the Broward County Courthouse just three days after the mass shooting.

The mural was defaced with illegible tags, and devil horns were spray-painted on Oliver's likeness.

Surviving Parkland families reacted by circulating images of the vandalism on Twitter.
