Famous Harvard University statue vandalized
A statue of Harvard University’s namesake has been vandalized on campus.
The John Harvard statue in Harvard Yard was spray-painted with the words “devil worship,” WCVB-TV reports.
Campus police say the vandalism was reported Saturday morning and officials are still investigating.
The bronze sculpture in front of University Hall has also been a frequent target of pranksters and vandals over the years. It’s a popular sight for visitors to the storied Cambridge, Massachusetts campus.
