Graffiti painted on three dead sperm whales on the coast of Lincolnshire in England has received criticism from Twitterati who have said that despite the intention, it was wrong to disrespect the dead mammals.
Environmentalists allegedly spray painted slogans like 'man's fault', and CND ( Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament) on the carcasses of the whales,reported the International Business Times.
However, CND later tweeted saying that no one from their department had been involved in spray painting the whales.
We condemn the graffiti on the dead whale. For the record:it's not us & it's not our logo. CND's logo has a vertical line from top to bottom— CND (@CNDuk) January 25, 2016
But no one was amused by the campaign and here's what Twitterati had to say:
1) That's not a CND sign. 2) That's not how you spell Fukushima. Apart from that, good work lads. pic.twitter.com/07kjpbb8Bw— Ewan Palmer (@EwanPalmer) January 25, 2016
Spraying graffiti on a dead whale ... distasteful, unnecessary and disrespectful. pic.twitter.com/Xs60LrmhNY— Lewis Pugh (@LewisPugh) January 26, 2016
Very sad the beached whale died and slightly confusing as to why someone thought daubing CND on it was a good call. https://t.co/qWqnKzsmOx— James Hallwood (@jhallwood) January 25, 2016
Only in Skegness would you get people spraying graffiti on a dead whale, taking selfies with it, and chopping its teeth out— Jordan Brown (@jordbrown96) January 25, 2016
Disgusting to hear a man went to the beach that has the dead whales on it & removed teeth fron the whale. Hope he's found and prosecuted— Steve Carruthers (@FallenShadows82) January 25, 2016
