Tennessee statue of former Confederate general painted pink

NASHVILLE, Tennessee. – A Worker statue on private property along an interstate in Tennessee has been painted pink in the last act of vandalism.

The Tennessean reports from the statue of Nathan Bedford Forrest seems to have been painted late Tuesday or early Wednesday. The image shows the beginning of the Ku Klux Klan leader, former confederate general riding on a horse.

Owner Bill Dorris said the image is “shot at six times,” among other acts of vandalism. He said that he is planning to leave the pink paint, which he expects red in the sunlight and attract more attention for the image along the Interstate 65 south of downtown Nashville.

Dorris said a dozen cameras have been placed on his property. He is waiting for help reviewing the images to try to figure out who is responsible for the paint.
