A Connecticut teenager — who has been identified as Kaitlyn Renee or “Kay Kay” — had the audacity to deface an elaborate Nipsey Hussle mural with a can of black spay paint over the weekend.
The person filming it, who Twitter has accused of being in on the stunt, stood there and laughed as the aspiring vandal took selfies with the damaged wall.

Twitter sleuths noticed the suspect tagged the letters “SK” on the mural, which are the same letters on the back of the woman’s t-shirt watching the whole thing go down.
Anyway, this pic is floating around on Twitter & IG, ppl r saying it was 4 clout. Shawty in blue said don’t get his face, you can get over there & didn’t stop her… What do you think? #NipseyHussle #mural #Hartford #hophop #rap #EntertainmentNews pic.twitter.com/peOIBJciNv

“Kay Kay” took to social media to defend herself after she received death threats.
“Y’all really mad,” she wrote. “I ain’t boutta argue with none of y’all over some PAINTING. you know how much dope shit in heaven park gets painted over? Oh alright then hop off. Yah Boutta “kill” me over a painting. That shit is hilarious.”
She added, “Who’s a bitch? Not I. no disrespect to Corey [artist] y’all was just coming out y’all mouths WAY TOO much so I did what I did.”
But nipsey, of course, was murdered on March 31 outside of his Marathon Clothing store in South Los Angeles. His death set off a ripple effect of sorrow and anger across the entire Hip Hop community.
Naturally, fans of Neighborhood Nip are seething over the disrespectful act and took to Twitter to voice their outrage.
Check out a few of the reactions below.
