The Blackhawks statue outside the United Center on Madison Street was vandalized early Monday morning.

The statue was painted black and placed under a tarp during the day Monday. It will be temporarily removed and sent in for repairs soon, a Blackhawks spokesperson said.


Orange paint was thrown over the Native American head logo, "land back" was spray-painted on the list of names on the base portion of the statue, and a number of phrases were spray painted on the concrete surrounding the statue.
