Mural of Half-Naked Clinton Causes Scandal in Australia
Residents of a Melbourne suburb are seeking to have an “offensive” street mural of Hillary Clinton removed. The mural, located on the wall of a business in the suburb of Footscray, shows the presidential nominee in a barely there stars-and-stripes swimsuit, with a wad of cash tucked into the side. Members of the local council have demanded that it be taken down due to its “depiction of a near-naked woman, not on the basis of disrespect to Hillary Clinton, in accordance with the Graffiti Prevention Act 2007,” Australian media reported, citing council head Stephen Wall. The artist of the mural, Lushsux, has hit back by saying the mural is no more offensive than a deodorant ad, adding that he might “paint a big mural of Trump in similar style” soon.
