Beastie Boys’ Adam Yauch playground vandalized with swastika

NEW YORK >> A Brooklyn playground named for the late Beastie Boys’ star Adam Yauch had been vandalized with swastikas and the words “Go Trump!”

Photos show the swastika and words were spray-painted on playground equipment in the Brooklyn Heights neighborhood.

The city named the park for the late rapper, who was Jewish, in 2013. He died of cancer in 2012 at the age of 47.

New York City Councilman Brad Lander said police were investigating and a Parks Department spokesman said today the graffiti was removed.

It was one of several recent instances of the Nazi symbol being found around New York and in other parts of the country.

The playground includes basketball courts, a community garden, a greenhouse, fitness area, an open play space, drinking fountains and a dog run.

  • Another fictional AP story to tarnish Trump. This act, if it happened, was done by one of the left-wing malevolent do-gooders, violent pacifists trying to sabotage the President-elect. With each story and each act, the left-wing liberals and their public relations agency, the liberal media, continue to destroy themselves and lose all credibility.
