A new mural in the US is causing outrage on social media.
The mural, which is located on Melrose Avenue in West Hollywood, Los Angeles is flanked by security and a sign, saying “Private mural – for verified influencers and people with more than 20,000 followers online”.
“We apologize for the inconvenience. See security staff for proof and access”
Today we are so excited to debut the beautiful mural we curated in the heart of the LA art scene. Come down and check it out. Unfortunately the mural is currently for verified influencers and people with over 20k followers only. However it may be public soon. Stay tuned! pic.twitter.com/CRIzqaAhX8

The casual passer-by can’t actually see the mural as the whole thing is cloaked with a white sheet. You may only pass behind the sheet if security see your influencer credentials pass the test.
Vice journo Justin Caffier (verified, followers 5256) has exposed the “art” on Twitter which has been retweeted around 3000 times. Some say it’s a publicity stunt by EDM Dillon Francis for Like And Subscribe, a new comedy about a YouTuber’s attempts to become famous. Either way, we’ll find out on July 9, unless we’ve completely forgotten it ever happened.
ITS NOT EVEN A GOOD MURAL
