Chick-fil-A Vandal Speaks Out

Says painting on side of restaurant was effort to create conversation. Offers to pay to repaint wall.


Five days after a Chick-fil-A restaurant in Torrance, Calif., was vandalized, local police have still made no arrest in the case—despite artist Manny Castro coming forward to The Huffington Post to claim responsibility for the graffiti.

"The case is still ongoing," Lt. Mike Jezulin of the Torrance Police Department told HuffPost. "We're following up on a couple of things."

The graffiti, which depicts a cartoon cow painting the words "Tastes Like Hate" on a wall, is a play on the restaurant chain's advertising campaign in which cows paint messages on signs and billboards urging people to eat more chicken.
