Someone vandalized the Toronto sign last night
The Toronto sign at Nathan Phillips Square looked particularly stunning last night when it was surrounded by Nuit Blanche installations, including Director X's giant white ball (or Death of the Sun).
But as crowds of people descended upon city hall, some Nuit Blanchers were clearly inspired by all the creative vibes and left their mark on our city's iconic nameplate. And their artistic streak wasn't exactly welcome.
That's right, as the Toronto Star reports today, the Toronto sign was vandalized during yesterday's festivities. Luckily, however, it doesn't look like there's going to be any permanent damage. The sign should be Insta-ready after it gets a good cleaning over the next couple of days.
There's a particularly good shot of the vandalism on Reddit that shows just how vapid the messages written on the sign were. The Nuit Blanche crowds seemed mostly well behaved last night, but when something like this happens, it puts a damper on the whole event.
