Mayor Bill de Blasio is under fire from Black Lives Matter activists for not cleaning up the defaced Black Lives Matter logo in front of Trump Tower in Midtown Manhattan.

The NY Post reports New Yorkers are blaming the "pathetic" mayor for ignoring the paint-splattered mural on Fifth Avenue a week after a vandal was arrested.

Mark-David Hutt, 31, was arrested twice for pouring paint on the large yellow logo just after 5 p.m. on July 25, and again the next morning before 10 a.m.

Hutt was issued desk appearance tickets on both days. But the paint remains dried on the logo after one week.

Guardian Angels founder Curtis Sliwa told The NY Post the mayor and City Hall don't seem to care about the logo now that the cameras are gone.

"It's been a full week and I asked the cops why the DOT hasn't repaired the BLM paint job," Sliwa told The Post. "They said City Hall doesn't seem to care any longer about this BLM logo. The mayor seems to have ADD on this matter, like he does most matters in NYC."

A police source told The Post that the BLM logo is no longer "the flavor of the month".

"That's what makes him a horrible mayor. Black Lives Matter isn't the flavor of the month anymore. Very short attention span, we know that already. It's just a waste of taxpayer dollars in the first place. You got between five and 15 cops sitting out there on overtime watching that stupid s--t and shootings are piling up. They're there to protect the mural, and obviously they're not doing a good job of that."

Matthew Martin, 30, called it "pretty disappointing" that the city hasn't cleaned up the logo, "considering this is probably the most notable Black Lives Matter mural in the country."

Martin said, "Leaving it like this for a week is pretty pathetic, honestly, and is a pretty good indicator of the kind of leader the mayor is."

A spokesman for de Blasio's office told The Post "inclement weather" on Friday was to blame for the delay in removing the paint and said the city Department of Transportation should be removing it on Monday.

The spokesman said the city's DOT "were doing some similar work out in Queens on Thursday."

Mayor de Blasio helped paint the movement's slogan on Fifth Avenue and on Jamaica Avenue near 150th Street in the Queens borough of NYC.

Both logos were vandalized by anti-BLM protesters.

NBA star J.R. Smith posted a video online explaining why he beat up an ANTIFA member who vandalized his car during the George Floyd protests in California.

"I just want y'all to know right now before you all see this sh*t somewhere else. One of these little motherf*cking white boys didn't know where he was going and broke my f*cking window in my truck," Smith explained in a video.

Smith said he chased the vandal down and "whooped his a**."

"So, if the footage come out and y'all see it, I chased him down and whooped his ass. He broke my window. This ain't no hate crime. I ain't got no problem with anybody who doesn't have a problem with me. There's a problem with the motherf*cking system and that's it. That motherf*cker broke my window and I whooped his ass. He didn't know whose window he broke, and he got his ass whooped."

Fan reaction was mixed. One IG user wrote:

"How you feel stupid but still got the video up .take that sht down and make an apology video. You got millions and your car is insured .how dumb can you become."

ANTIFA members have been accused of using the tragedy of Floyd's death to cause havoc and chaos and disrupt the American way of life.

The anti-fascist group is reportedly funded by Hungarian-born globalist George Soros, who has homes in the United States and Europe.

Former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin shows anger and a lack of remorse in his mugshot released hours after he was arrested and charged in George Floyd's death.

Floyd, 46, died Monday after Chauvin knelt on his neck for nearly 9 minutes following his an arrest for passing a counterfeit $20 bill at a grocery store.

Viral video showed Chauvin kneeling on Floyd's neck as he begged for air and bystanders pleaded with him to stop.

Chauvin, 44, was charged Friday with 3rd degree murder and manslaughter on day 4 of rioting and looting in south Minneapolis.

The charges carry a sentence of no more than 25 years or a fine of no more than $40,000, or both.

Despite Chauvin's arrest, violent protests spread to cities in California, New York, Maryland, and Georgia.

Rioters destroyed CNN's headquarters in downtown Atlanta, breaking glass, throwing bottles and setting a police car on fire outside the building.

Police in riot gear clashed with rioters inside the CNN building as protesters destroyed the interior.

Atlanta Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms angrily addressed the rioters at a press conference Friday night.

"You have defaced the CNN building. Ted Turner started CNN in Atlanta, 40 years ago because he believed in who we are as a city," she said. "If you care about this city, then go home!"

Protesters said the riots will continue until three other officers who were at the scene of Floyd's murder are arrested.

Rapper and entrepreneur Killer Mike rebuked CNN for inciting riots with their news coverage.

"I love CNN — but karma's a mother... Stop feeding fear & anger everyday," he said.
