Man accused of scrawling words ‘Nazi artwork’ on painting in Met

A deranged vandal was arrested for scrawling the words “Nazi artwork” on a painting inside the Metropolitan Museum of Art, sources said.

Ryan Watson, 33, allegedly used a blue pen to scrawl the phrases “Nazi artwork” and “Not slaves” on a student art piece in the museum at around 5 p.m. Wednesday, according to police sources and a Met museum spokesperson.

When a guard intervened to stop him, the vandal allegedly yelled “go back to your country,” sources said.

The museum released a statement that said they were grateful for the quick action of their security and the NYPD.

“A visitor was caught vandalizing a student’s work of art that was on view in the Metropolitan Museum’s education center,” read a statement from a spokesperson from The Metropolitan Museum of Art.

“The Met is reaching out to the student and will make every effort to restore the work of art, which was on view as part of the Scholastic Art & Writing Awards.”

Watson was arrested on charges of criminal mischief and possession of a graffiti instrument. He was awaiting arraignment at Manhattan Criminal Court Thursday night.
Those who find the truth hateful just hate hearing the truth.

A mind is a terrible thing to waste.....on a nigger.

If you're not catching flak, you're not over the target.
