Several social media posts have emerged of a global warming fanatic throwing cake at arguably the world’s most famous painting, the Mona Lisa, painted by Leonard da Vinci in the 16th century.
The man dressed as an old woman in a wheelchair, including a wig and lipstick, in order to get close enough to launch the attack, USA News reports.
The ‘oil’ painting, that hangs in the Louvre, was undamaged as it has been protected by glass since the 1950s after a person threw acid at the painting.
As security led the young man out, he shouted:
“Think of the Earth. There are people who are destroying the Earth. Think about it. Artists tell you: Think of the Earth. That’s why I did this.”
It appears that watercolor paintings are safe for now.
