FAYETTEVILLE -- This summer, a mural that read "LOVE UNITES US" was painted on a wall vandalized with white pride graffiti.
Tuesday night, the building on Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard was defaced with more graffiti, including a reference to a white supremacist slogan.
White pride graffiti showed up on the wall in July. It took about a week for residents to respond.
Local artist Olivia Trimble took a few days to repaint the wall with the message "LOVE UNITES US".
Trimble posted on social media Tuesday morning, saying that the mural had been painted over.
"On July 23rd someone spray painted "white pride" on this wall, so I painted "Love Unites Us" over it. Last night someone vandalized it with the message "love weakens us"," Trimble said in the post. "They also painted "14 words" on the side of the building. I'll work to get this covered as quickly as I can."
