Sydney’s famous mural of ‘Saint’ George Michael has been vandalised.
The mural, which shows the late singer as a saint holding a cigarette and an amyl bottle, was pelted with eggs and damaged with homophobic graffiti, Pink News has reported.
“Dear Saint George had a visit from the vandalising NO hopers,” Seymour tweeted.
“A dozen eggs plus graffiti. Feel sorry for the eggs. Washing their sins away.”
Four strangers volunteered to help clean up the artwork.
The inner-west mural by artist Scott Marsh was completed early this year.
Marsh is the artist behind other famous murals, including the portrait of Kanye West making out with another Kanye West in Chippendale.
The mural immortalising George Michael was completed in the weeks after the star’s death on Christmas Day 2016.
George Michael’s final interview is set to air soon in Freedom, a documentary produced and directed by the singer himself.
