In an apparent environment-related publicity stunt, a visitor to the Louvre in Paris attempted to smash the glass protecting the world’s most famous painting before smearing cake across its surface.
According to the Paris prosecutor’s office, the 36-year-old man was detained after the incident and taken to a police psychiatric unit.
This individual stated that he did so in protest of the artists’ failure to pay enough attention to the “planet.”
“There are people destroying the earth,” the suspect, who was later referred for psychiatric treatment, said in French. Think of the earth, all artists.” That is why I did it. Consider the planet. “
According to the foreign media report, officials at the Louvre Museum in Paris have declined to comment on the incident.
