An iconic statue in downtown Sarasota sustained $1,000 in damage after “#MeToo” was spray painted on the statue just one day after the man portrayed in the statue died, according to Sarasota police.

The Unconditional Surrender statue depicts a famous photo of a spontaneous kiss in the streets of New York City between a U.S. sailor and a woman after the news of World War II coming to an end following Japan’s surrender on Aug. 14, 1945.

The sailor, George Mendonsa, died Sunday, two days before this 96th birthday.

The woman depicted in the photo and statue, Greta Friedman, died in 2016. She was 92. Friedman reportedly told CBS News in 2012 she didn’t see Mendonsa approaching.

  1. I don’t think todays generation appreciates what that represents. I feel sorry for them. They’ve fucked themselves out of most of what’s important in life. Especially when your’e young.

  2. I’m heading down to Sarasota for some vaca and I’m gonna get some ME-Too kissin’ done in front of that fun iconic statue and I’ll post some pics as well! I’m certain both Greta and George were proud they were part of the celebration of that evil conflict ending!

  3. Ignorance or quite methodical, either or?

    Evil.

    This is just not ONE person spray painting a sacred statue.

    This is a mentality we have to be ready for…

  4. It looks like World War Two was fought for naught. America is being invaded by illegals, while the country is destroyed from within.

    (the sound of “Taps” plays quietly in the distance)

  5. I’m guessing “Me Too!” isn’t what they would have answered to the question “Who wants to fight at Iwo Jima?”

  6. Put Chuck Norris on it!

    When HE goes to a feminazi march/gathering, HE comes back with an IRONED shirt AND a sammich! 😆 😆 😆

  7. It’s so sad that what the Hippies did to the Vietnam Veterans returning home wasn’t enough, that the offspring of the hippies are exercising the same mentality of their parents to assault Tom Brokaw’s “Greatest Generation”.
    Really disgusting and sick.
