September 02 - Graceland Wall Clean(ed)

Graceland took care of business, the graffiti on the Graceland walls have been removed.

The graffiti covered up many of the hundreds of tributes to the music icon handwritten by fans on the wall over the years. By mid-morning on Tuesday, workers with power-wash equipment were removing the slogans and by Wednesday it was all cleaned and removed.

Priscilla Presley expressed her disgust at the vandalism: 

"Concerning the graffiti at Graceland, I’m absolutely horrified that those in our own city disgraced the walls surrounding Graceland. I’m saddened by acts like this and appalled by this behavior. We were able to clean all the graffiti off thanks to our dedicated crew".

Graceland has put on extra security to protect the wall from vandals ... or was it Elvis who took care of business? :-)
