A children's playground named in memory of the late Beastie Boys rapper Adam Yauch was defaced with Swasitkas and Trump slogans on Friday, the New York Post reported.
According to the Post
, local officials have announced a rally at the Crown Heights, Brooklyn park to "denounce hate and intimidation.”
Yauch, who founded the Beastie Boys with Mike Diamond and Adam Horowitz in 1979, was born to a Jewish mother and a Catholic father in Brooklyn. He was diagnosed with cancer in 2009 and passed away at age 47 in 2012.
Two swastikas were carved into a door at the Manhattan apartment building where New York State Sen. Brad Hoylman resides earlier this week
, prompting the senator to express his fear they were inspired by President-elect Donald Trump's recent victory, according to the New York Daily News
The vandalism, according to Hoylman, was a result of Trump refusing to condemn the white supremacist ties of Steve Bannon
, who Trump recently "rewarded" as his chief strategist.
