"STREETARTGLOBE/LUSHSUX/FACEBOOK AND INSTAGRAM @STREETARTGLOBE" A street artist in Melbourne, Australia, updated an earlier mural of U.S. Democratic Presidential candidate Hillary Clinton after local authorities lodged a complaint. The artist who goes by the handle Lushsux spray painted an image of Hillary Clinton wearing a stars-and-stripes swimsuit, stuffed with cash. After members of the town council complained that it was offensive, Lushsux covered Hillary in Muslim dress. The new mural contained the message: "If this Muslim woman offends u, u r a bigot, racist, sexist, Islamophobe." Local media reported that Lushsux was told by the local town council to remove the first mural. That same wall was subsequently painted completely black by the council, in a move that Lushsux said was "pathetic".
