Atlanta police investigating racial Elmer Fudd graffiti
News


ATLANTA -- Atlanta police are investigating controversial graffiti left on the side of a Midtown building. 

The image of the cartoon character Elmer Fudd wearing a police uniform, holding a shotgun along with the words "Negro Season" on a sign, was painted on the garage of a building on West Peachtree Street. The image had the tag name of MAES.

The building's facilities manager told police that staff first saw the graffiti on Saturday. By Monday, the image had been painted over. The manager is checking on the building's surveillance camera.

It's not clear if the image is meant to be a political statement aimed at police, or if it is racially derisive message.
