"# MeToo" sprayed on the emblematic statue of a sailor, kissing nurse at the Second World War



The statue was formed after an emblematic photograph taken at Times Square in 1945, showing a woman dressed in white uniform embraced and kissed by a sailor to celebrate the end of the Second World War.

The woman identified as Greta Friedman at that time was 21 years old and she did not know the sailor who was identified as George Mendonsa.

Looking back at the time, later, Friedman described a kiss he disagreed. "Suddenly a seaman grabbed me," she told Veterans History in 2005. "It was not that much kiss, it was more of a joke that he did not have to go back." The sailor is "very strong," she told Veterans History. "It just was holding me tight I'm not sure about the kiss … It was just a celebration It was not romantic It was just …" Thank God, the war is over. "

Mendonsa's memory is similar. we get to Times Square and the war ends and I see the sister, "he told CNN in 2015." I had a few drinks, and that was just an instinct, I guess. I just grabbed her. "

On Tuesday morning, police found that someone had used a red spray paint and wrote the words" #MeToo "of the statue in Sarasota, Florida

Police believe vandalism has occurred somewhere on Monday afternoon or a night
