A Save5Pointz Facebook fan commented “they’re gonna need painters on stand by” after the landlord Jerry Walkoff white washed the building overnight, painting over the works of countless of street artists.

A vigil was held on Tuesday night when according to Hyperallergic, “The protesters created a wall of messages to express their grief and anger, and the most popular scrawlings were “5Pointz: Rest in Power” “Beat the Buff!,” and “Fuck the Buff.”

My personal favorites are the messages to the landlord. Clearly his actions have created a monster that uses spray paint as its form of revenge. Jerry, go stock up on white paint – you may have won the battle but you have started a war.
