New York vandals scrawl ‘f*** Queen’ on monument day after death

An insult about the late Queen Elizabeth II was graffitied on a popular sculpture in New York City.

The words "F*** the Queen" were found on the Charging Bull sculpture on Wall Street with the NYPD currently searching for four suspects, the Daily Mirror reports.

Surveillance footage captured two men and two women walking through Manhattan at 2:30am on September 9, the day after the Queen passed away at her home in Balmoral.

The vandals had used a 'paint marker type instrument' to graffiti their shocking insult on the forehead of the sculpture.

The NYPD has confirmed while the defacing of the sculpture has been removed, the suspects have yet to be found as they could potentially a face a year in jail.

Unfortunately this is just one in a long line of incidents where the Charging Bull has been vandalised.

The bull's head was doused in blue pigment just three months after former President Donald Trump announced the US's withdrawal from the Paris Agreement on climate change.

President Biden and the First lady, Jill, visited the Queen's coffin in Westminster Hall to pay their respects before the funeral at Westminster Abbey on Monday (September 19).

Biden gave a glowing tribute to the Queen following news of her death, saying: "Just because of the way she touched when she leaned over. The way she had that look, like, 'are you okay? Anything I can do for you? What do you need?' and then also 'make sure you do what you are supposed to do'."

"To all the people of England, all the people of the United Kingdom, our hearts go out to you and you were fortunate to have had her for 70 years. We all were. The world is better for her.

"The American press has heard me say for a long time that I think the thing that is – maybe it's too much if you excuse the expression, the Irish of it – it is about treating people with dignity."
