LeBron James mural in L.A. erased by original artist after another case of vandalism

The artist was apparently sick of people messing with his artwork

The much-discussed Los Angeles mural featuring LeBron James in a Lakers uniform is no more.

One of the artists who originally painted the mural has undone his work this week, painting over the artwork, which was located on the side of a BBQ restaurant in Venice, California. 

The mural, created by Jonas Never and another artist named Menso, depicted LeBron in his new digs along with the words “The King of LA.”

Following two cases of vandalization in less than a week, Never decided to erase the work on Wednesday. He was apparently sick of the mural being messed with and decided to scrub it himself rather than let it continue to be defaced.
