A billboard promoting this weekend’s Papal visit to Malta was vandalised sometime during the night, with offensive writing and a moustache on the Pope’s face.The incident took place on a billboard which is situated on the main Mgarr road on the outskirts of Xewkija and Victoria.
Witnesses said that the billboard had some extremely offensive words scribbled across it and a moustache had also been added to the Pope’s face. This incident follows similar defacement of the Pope’s billboards in Malta, which has attracted worldwide media attention.
The offensive words on the billboard have now been painted over until a new replacement is erected.
