An uncouth and thirsty White girl flagrantly defaced a mural of Nipsey Hussle in Connecticut — all while Facetiming her actions and tauntingly sticking out her tongue.

Some may view her behavior as morally repugnant and blatant race-baiting. However, according to the local police department, the act is permissible and there is nothing authorities will do to stop it.

As a crowd of irate Nipsey fans watched, the girl taunted the onlookers as she deliberately and maliciously vandalized the mural painted of the late, legendary rapper, businessman and philanthropist who was killed on March 31, 2019.

According to HotNewHipHop, the female, identified as Kaitlyn Renee, aka “Kay Kay,” then hopped online to let her detractors know she is not afraid of their threats.

“Y’all really mad,” she wrote. “I ain’t boutta argue with none of y’all over some PAINTING. you know how much dope s— in heaven park gets painted over? Oh alright then hop off. Yah Boutta ‘kill’ me over a painting. That s— is hilarious.”

The Hartford Police Department stated that the teen was within her legal rights to paint whatever she wants to, even if others do not like it.

The department issued a statement that was obtained by The Blast that reads: “Lots of people are calling for action regarding the Nipsey Hussle mural being partially sprayed over. Please understand that the Heaven Skate Park has been declared an area welcome to graffiti/art.”

In short, folks are free to paint whatever they like, wherever they like, even if a person paints over something that others view as sacred.

“Dozens of murals have been altered or sprayed over during the years,” the police department added in the statement.

Hussle’s fans were seething. They believe the girl was clout chasing and committed the egregious act in order to raise her social media status. She posted herself on Facebook scrawling over Nipsey’s mural and aggressively taunting her critics afterward.

According to Fox61 in Connecticut, the mural, which was originally painted by local artist Corey Pan, was quickly repaired by local rapper and school teacher Joey Batts. He restored the mural of “Neighborhood Nip,” as he was called, and covered up any deformations. The refinished product was posted on Fox61’s FB page below:
