Mural of San Diego Chicken stomping on Philly Fanatic covered up after backlash

SAN DIEGO (KUSI) – Ground Floor Murals’ latest piece of work depicting the San Diego Chicken stomping on the Philly Fanatic has been covered up after backlash from the community.

The mural was painted on the side of Tivoli Bar and Grill in the Gaslamp Quarter, but the community was not pleased as the Padres have not yet beaten the Phillies. Superstitious fans believe the mural will possibly “jinx” the team.

Less than 24 hours after the mural was completed, the mural was painted over.

Both Ground Floor Murals and Tivoli Bar and Grill tell KUSI they are not responsible for the cover up.
