A statue of Jackie Robinson and Pee Wee Reese in Coney Island, Brooklyn, was recently targeted by vandals.

The statue, which sits outside of the stadium used by minor-league baseball team the Brooklyn Cyclones, was defaced with spray-painted swastikas and racist slurs, reports 1010 WINS.

Cyclones officials made the discovery Wednesday morning.

“Immediately we went into action to try to clean it and remove the graffiti,” Billy Harner, Director of Communications for the Brooklyn Cyclones, told 1010 WINS.
