The LeBron James mural in Los Angeles has been vandalized…again. 

A few days ago, a vandal took spray paint to the wall after someone offered money to anyone who destroyed the artwork. The mural was quickly restored—but that did not stop others from leaving their mark.

On Wednesday, Twitter user Godzo Ball tweeted out a photo of the mural that appears to show it completely covered in white paint:

This comes just days after James officially signed his contract with the Lakers.

After the first incident, artist Jonas Never told TMZ Sports that he understands vandalism is just “part of the world of public art”:

It didn’t take long for him to fix the mural the first time, although it may be more difficult to do so this time around.
