This morning, news surfaced that a statue of Jackie Robinson was vandalized.

 

The NYPD hate crimes task force is investigating after the vandalism was discovered on the statue outside the Brooklyn Cyclones stadium Wednesday.

 

Police say someone wrote in black marker “die n—–” and had a swastika and the word “Hitler.”

 

It also said “F— Jackie Robinson.”

 

The monument, dedicated in 2005, shows former Brooklyn Dodger Pee Wee Reese with his arm around Robinson, depicting their historic friendship.

The New York City Parks Department is in the process of cleaning and restoring the statue back to its pre-vandalism glory.

No one has been arrested for the crime.
