Vandals Deface Statue of National Anthem Author F.S. Key in Baltimore

Baltimore’s monument to the man who wrote the “Star-Spangled Banner” was defaced Tuesday night, with the words “Racist Anthem” scrawled in black.

The phrase was written at the base of the concrete and marble Francis Scott Key monument. Besides the black lettering, the structure was splashed with red and black paint.

On the ground near the monument, words from the third stanza of Key’s famous poem were painted in black, according to the Baltimore Sun: “No refuge could save, hireling or slave, from terror of flight, or gloom of grave.”

The Key incident comes a few weeks after a monument to Christopher Columbus was vandalized in Baltimore and a week after the city removed four monuments honoring Confederate leaders.
