BREAKING: NYC Central Park Statue of Christopher Columbus Vandalized #SOMETHINGISCOMING

A famous statue of Christopher Columbus was vandalized on Tuesday morning, the morning of the city primary election, with its hands painted with red paint and the message “HATE WILL NOT BE TOLERATED” and “#SOMETHINGISCOMING” forewarning future incidents.

The message of #somethingiscoming was on the bottom.

A Central Park observatory official speaking on condition of anonymity said this probably happened between 2am and 5am because the spray paint on the hands was still sticky at 7am.
