WASHINGTON - The Bill Cosby mural on the side of Ben’s Chili Bowl in Northwest D.C. was defaced with the image of Kim Jong Un, the controversial leader of North Korea.
A person known as Smear Leader on Instagram is taking credit for the defacement of the mural. With over 1,000 followers, the Instagram account shows images, drawings and stickers of the North Korean leader’s face placed at different locations around the nation’s capital such as the White House and random D.C. street signs.
Cosby has been under fire after the comedian and actor has been accused by dozens of women of rape and court documents showing Cosby even admitted to using drugs to lure women for sex.
Cosby is a longtime friend of Ben’s Chili Bowl, a popular landmark in Washington D.C. Despite calls from some for the removal of the Cosby mural, the restaurant has not made any plans to remove it.
The image of Kim Jong Un was removed from the mural on Monday.
Thank You to all who visited the chili bowl today. On a field guidance tour the leader was very pleased at the production of hot dogs and chili.
