Vandals in Long Island, New York altered an exit sign on southbound Sagtikos Parkway Thursday to read “Crooked Hillary,” which became her nickname from Trump’s and his legion of supporters during the presidential campaign.
The unidentified graffiti artist reportedly added a few extra letters to the sign, which originally read “Crooked Hill Rd,” to insult Trump’s former opponent.
The Hill reports that state officials have since taken the sign down after several commuters reported the modification earlier that day.
“As soon as we were notified about the graffiti yesterday morning, it was removed,” said a spokesperson for the Department of Transportation. “Defacing public signs is illegal.”
Trump even reignited Clinton’s famous moniker in a tweet on Thursday: “Crooked H destroyed phones w/ hammer, ‘bleached’ emails, & had husband meet w/AG days before she was cleared- & they talk about obstruction?”
