Downtown L.A. mural that’s been there for years a ‘shameful act of anti-Semitism,’ mayor’s office says

“Imagery like this should have no place in our city,” Comisar said. “Mayor Garcetti was incredibly upset by it. We’re looking into the recourse that we have to have it taken down.”

The mural is painted on a brick building that’s home to the Vortex, a 400-person event space in downtown Los Angeles.

The Vortex said in a statement on Facebook that the mural was created several years ago to acknowledge the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks as part of the “L.A. vs. War” art show.
