The mural of Barcelona dedicated to Raffaella Carrà, who died last July 5 in Rome, was scarred with con homophobic insults. The work of the street artist Tvboy which portrays the singer’s face on a rainbow background was accompanied by the inscription: “A life is a life when you have the freedom” to reiterate the message of inclusiveness and against the homophobia of which the TV presenter has always been the spokesperson. But the universal message was not liked by some homophobic vandals who decided to smear the drawing with the words “Gay no” And “Vih“.
