KUSI-TV is reporting that a mural on a school wall in California depicts an Aztec warrior, spearing President Donald Trump’s decapitated, bloody head.
Many residents in the Chula Vista area have complained that the painting is graphic and inappropriate, considering it is on the wall of a school. A public charter school, supported with taxpayer money.
According to KUSI:
MAAC Charter, chartered by Sweetwater Union High School District, touts itself as a community school that offers students a unique curriculum in which students learn traditional subjects in relation to real-world issues. Director Tommy Ramirez explained this mural was apart of Battlegroundz, an annual event which highlights the urban art form of street murals to raise money to provide scholarships for seniors.
“We understand that there was a mural painted at the event this past weekend that does not align with our school’s philosophy of non-violence. We have been in communication with the artist who has agreed to modify the artwork to better align with the school’s philosophy,” Ramirez said.
Currently, the mural is covered by a black tarp.
