The famous Sarasota statue, “Unconditional Surrender”, depicting George Mendonsa kissing Greta Zimmer Friedman in an ecstatic act of celebration on the Day World War Two ended has been daubed with “#MeToo” the day after the veteran died.
In a Time article, Zimmer Friedman’s son explained that “she understood the argument that it was an assault but did not necessarily view it that way”.
The graffiti has been removed, at a cost of $1000+.
Lacking CCTV, evidence or witnesses, Sarasota police are appealing for information to lead to the identification of the perpetrator/s.
