Ben Stiller & Beastie Boys' Ad-Rock Lead Protest After MCA's Memorial Was Defaced With Pro-Trump Graffiti & Swastikas! See What They Said!

no title

You gotta fight for your right… to not have swastikas spray painted on children's parks, apparently.

Last week, an unknown Donald Trump supporter defaced a memorial park in honor of late Beastie Boys rapper Adam Yauch (aka MCA) with swastika graffiti, along with the words "Go Trump."

Obviously, New Yorkers weren't too pleased to find the Nazi symbol written multiple times on playground equipment at the Brooklyn park — so, hundreds of citizens gathered to protest the hate messages on Sunday!

Among those in the crowd spreading love was New York Senator Daniel Squadron and Yauch's fellow Beastie Boy Adam Horovitz. Ad-Rock said was glad to see so many band together and protest against the offensive symbols:

"Everybody that heard about this came out. We got old friends and new friends."

One of Horovitz's friends was Ben Stiller, who said this isolated incident was part of a larger wave of hate crimes that have flooded the country in the weeks following Trump's electoral win. He explained:

Adam Yauch Park Becomes Official, Brooklyn Playground Gets New Name!

Filed under: R.I.P.Inspiration

We were very excited to hear that there were plans to rename a park in Brooklyn after the late Beastie Boy, Adam Yauch. Especially when we had heard that Adam learned to ride a bike there many years ago! It's so fitting for such a cool dude!

Well, we're happy to announce that the ceremony has been held, and that the park is now officially known as Adam Yauch Park!

On hand to speak was Adam's mom, and also his fellow band-mate Ad-Rock (who spoke in the video above!)!

If was a small and relaxed ceremony, and it's the perfect way to remember someone who had been taken too soon!

RIP MCA!

While the two events are obviously not related, that is a sh*tload of negativity pouring on remaining Beastie Boy members Michael Diamond AKA Mike D, and Adam Horovitz AKA Ad-Rock.

The day before Beasite Adam Yauch passed away due to cancer complications, the iconic band was sued by Hip-Hop label TufAmerica, who claim the boys - along with Universal Music Group - illegally sampled sounds on their first two career-defining albums Licensed to Ill and Paul’s Boutique.
