Fox 13 reporter Shelia O'Connor tweeted out photographs of the damaged walls on Tuesday morning, which included messages about the death of Breonna Taylor, who was killed in Louisville while police were serving a no-knock warrant on her home.
"Every time I've been to Graceland in the past 40 years, that wall has been covered in graffiti, mostly from Elvis fans". That is to say, aside from the day that Elvis surpassed away, this appropriate here is legitimate up ensuing to it.
'This is totally uncalled for, ' said Stanley. The historic concert venue The Levitt Shell was covered in similar phrases like, "Eat the Rich", "F**k Trump" and "Defund MPD" and '"End homelessness".
News reports show that Graceland, the former Tennessee home of Elvis Presley, has been vandalized. Graceland was not the only place in Tennessee that was vandalized recently. However, Democrat State Rep. Antonio Parkinson had a different view. "We wake up, excited to celebrate our city on 901 Day, and we see our lovely historic landmark defaced with messages of pain", she said. "So, really, it's WHAT was written, not the fact that it was written, right?" he wrote. Moreover, fans of "The King of Rock 'n Roll" are taking to social media to voice their disapproval of the vandalism; others are arguing that because Graceland visitors typically write their names and short messages on the outer wall, the graffiti didn't actually deface the structure.
Wilson said she doesn't condone the graffiti but the actions are devastating because of budget issues due to the pandemic.
Storyful has asked Memphis police for a comment on the incident.
The dissent trademarks had been painted in thick dark and orange lettering at the stone divider that encompasses the King's house close by Elvis Presley Boulevard, the Commercial Appeal previously announced.
