The world's first David Bowie statue was unveiled in the town of Aylesbury in recent days, and was generally met with a positive reaction.

However, it seems that not everyone was happy about the money spent on a tribute to the music icon, as the 'Earthly Messenger' artwork has already been vandalised.

Although the piece was crowdfunded, the disgruntled member(s) of the public spray-painted "Feed the homeless first" on the ground in front of the statue, as well as covering parts of it in paint. Rather confusingly, 'RIP DB' is also written twice on the wall beside it.
