Several iconic landmarks in Memphis were hit by graffiti overnight, including the former home of Elvis Presley.
Messages of “Defund the Police” and “BLM” marked the wall outside Graceland on Elvis Presley Boulevard, the Levitt Shell Amphitheater in Overton Park and the “I Heart Memphis” mural in midtown Memphis.
All three were found tagged Tuesday morning with similar messages, some using profanity.
“We were just driving by this morning and we looked over,” said Alice Self, Elvis fan. “We just couldn’t believe it. We were just stunned by it.”
Bill Stanley, Elvis’ stepbrother, says he’s appalled that someone would deface Elvis’ home.
