Melbourne, Australia — A graffiti artist was forced to “convert” his mural of a bikini-clad Hillary Clinton on Monday. The conversion resulted in the image of a burka-clad Hillary Clinton.
In June, an artist who goes by the name ‘Lushsux,’ painted on the side of a store a mural of Hillary Clinton with a ‘barely-there’ bikini that reveals a curvy figure. The bikini was stuffed with $100 bills.
The store’s owner was out of town, but the person watching over the business said she had no problem with the mural. However, the Maribyrnong Council found it offensive and demanded it removed.
Lushsux accepted the demand and covered the bikini with a full burqa. He amped up the sarcasm by writing a message next to the modified mural: “If this Muslim woman offends u, u r a bigot, racist, sexist Islamophobe.”
The council remained upset.
On Tuesday, Lushsux posted a picture on his Twitter account that showed the mural entirely covered with black paint. He caption read, “Looks like the council wins.”
This is no longer a wall of a supposed “offensive and near naked” Hillary Clinton, a beautiful Muslim woman. pic.twitter.com/M7Uzr4gqBC
