An artist repaired a mural honoring George Floyd Thursday in Santa Barbara after it was vandalized overnight.

Chadillac Green painted the mural on the side of the EOS Lounge. It features a picture of George Floyd along with the words "Please, I can't breathe."

The mural was painted over with the words "All Lives Matter."

"Usually I don't mind people coming in and dissing my thing but this time it just affects me," Green said. "It affects the community. It affects a whole race. They're not only covering up my name but they're covering up a race and a movement."

Green said the person who vandalized his painting is a coward and ignorant of the Black Lives Matter movement.
