Sad: The Matisse Thybulle mural in Fishtown has been vandalized
Matisse Thybulle’s mural in Fishtown on the side of Garage has been vandalized.
Thybulle was sent to Portland at the NBA Trade Deadline in a three team trade that brought Jalen McDaniels to Philadelphia. Posts today showed the mural vandalized with white paint over his jersey and the “Thank You Philly” note that Matisse wrote after he found out he was dealt to Portland.
Matisse Thybulle’s Mural Vandalized
Well damn. I honestly can’t figure out why anyone would have such a problem with Thybulle where they would actually go out of their way to throw white paint all over his mural. Pretty fucked up. A Thybulle mural was always somewhat of a funny concept to some but there’s no denying that the finished product was pretty sick. Matisse was an all-around good guy and seemed to enjoy his time here in Philadelphia. Screwing that up seems stupid.
I guess we’ll chalk it up to some loser kids with nothing better to do now that the Eagles are over and the NBA is currently wrapping up the always dreaded NBA All-Star break? Just seems pretty stupid overall that someone went out of their way to do this when all things considered, there was probably plans to re-do the side of Garage anyways now that Matisse is gone.
