    Some really do think the devil wears Prada. The “Prada Marfa” replica store, known for shining an international spotlight on a desolate area of Valentine, Texas since its installation in 2005, was vandalized last night by what seems to be radical activists. The minimalist structure, designed by Scandinavian artists Elmgreen and Drgset, was graffitied, splattered with blue paint, and covered in TOMS paraphernalia stating that the brand “will bring greater inspiration to consumer Americans…so long as you buy TOMS shoes, and endorse Jesus Christ as your savior, welcoming the ‘white’ him into your heart.”
