The Mona Lisa was the subject of attempted vandalism on Sunday when a visitor to the world-famous Louvre museum in Paris smeared frosting all over the Renaissance-era painting’s protective glass. The man, who appeared to wear a wig in videos of the incident shared on social media, approached the painting in a wheelchair before throwing a piece of cake at the artwork. Videos of the aftermath show him on foot with a wheelchair nearby. The 36-year-old man was arrested.
… In a video published by a museum-goer on Twitter, the man is heard saying in French, “Think of planet Earth, there are people destroying it.”
