Brooklyn, NY – The Beastie Boys have prepared their response to anti-semitic graffiti that appeared at late member Adam “MCA” Yauch’s park in Brooklyn, New York this week.
The iconic group is planning an anti-hate rally in the same park where swastikas and “Go Trump” were painted on the playground equipment in the weeks after Donald Trump was elected president. The rally is to be held tomorrow (November 20) at 11:30 a.m. EST.
Hate has no place in Brooklyn, NYC, or America.
Join us on Sunday to stand against hate messages.

Yauch passed away from cancer in 2012 at the age of 47. The remaining members of the Beastie Boys, Mike D and Ad-Rock, continue his legacy as they celebrated the 30th anniversary of their debut album, Licensed to Ill earlier this week.
