Hundreds turned out and rallied on Sunday to denounce “hate and intimidation,” after Pro-Trump racist images were spray painted on playground equipment in a park named for the late Beastie Boy Adam Yauch.
Local officials held a rally at the Adam Yauch Park in Brooklyn Heights to protest the spray painting of Swastikas on Friday.
Fellow Beastie Boy Adam Horovitz, aka “Ad-Rock,” Yauch’s freind and band mate for more than 30 years spoke to the large crowd.
“Keep your eyes open, stand up for each other. This is homegrown terrorism for real,” Horovitz said.
“I reject Donald Trump's vision for America. New York City, I'm asking you to do the same.”
Actor Ben Stiller also attended.
Yauch died in 2012 after battling throat cancer.
