Adam Yauch Park in Brooklyn Vandalized with Pro-Trump Graffiti, Swastikas

A park in Brooklyn Heights dedicated to the memory of Beastie Boy Adam “MCA” Yauch in 2013, was vandalized during the night Thursday.

adam yauchAdam Yauch was raised Jewish and played at the former Palmetto Park as a child. He became a practicing Buddhist later in life, apologizing for early Beastie Boys lyrics deemed offensive to women and denouncing Islamaphobia. Yauch died in 2012 at the age of 47 after a lengthy battle with cancer.

City councilor Brad Lander took to Twitter Friday speaking out on the issue.

Billboard reports that vandals took to playground equipment with crudely spray-painted swastikas and the words “Go Trump,” in another of a growing number of hate crimes reported since last week’s presidential election.

Local leaders have announced a gathering in the park for Sunday morning to denounce the hate speech.
