“Only one day after it’s completion, some idiot in Detroit already defaced the new M mural,” wrote Devins on Instagram. “You can’t give some people anything good. Dumb. I can probably fix it but damn.”

He also spoke to The Detroit News about the defacing.

"[I] felt terrible,"said Devins, who also painted murals of Juice WRLD and King Von in Chicago. "I was devastated. Who would do that? That’s against the rules of street art. I want to restore it to its original value. I would like to re-present it to the community in its unblemished form ... It was a great wall. It looked like it was going to sit there for a second, so I thought it could use some beautification. It really enhances that wall. To me, it’s totally appropriate. I wanted to do him looking young and fresh. I didn’t put up anything ugly.”

Why do you think someone defaced the Em mural just one day after it was completed?
