When LeBron James announced he was heading to LA to continue his sports and entertainment takeover, fans in the City of Angels went crazy for King James.
One business, a BBQ restaurant in Venice, decided to give him his own mural, depicting him as the King of La.
LA is all in for @kingjames and have crowned him already #kingofla #tslsports @espn

But as with almost everything nice in the hood, you can’t have it for too long, and this held true with this mural as haters vandalized it twice in a week. The artists fixed it after the first incident but after the most recent one, they decided to take it down.

Lebron James’ mural in Venice has been vandalized for a second time – so the artist painted white over the whole thing. Story at 5:15pm @nbcla #lakers #graffiti #art #streetart
After such a joyous occasion for the city and state, you would think something this nice and creative would be left to live but there’s always a few haters out there who want to play the role of Spit from “Beat Street” and spread their hate.

Cowards show their colors again, literally, this time in Venice, CA. Damn y’all, can’t we have anything nice?
