Some New Yorkers aren’t feeling particularly friendly toward David Schwimmer.
Anti-Friends graffiti has popped up on Sixth Street, where the actor’s new mansion is nearing completion. The spray-painted message, first reported by EV Grieve, makes an insulting reference to Schwimmer’s Friends character, Ross.
“ROSS IS NOT COOL,” reads the text, found on a nearby construction site.
The anti-Schwimmer sentiment may be related to the demolition of a historic townhouse the actor had torn down in 2011 as a spot for his new digs. He bought the property in 2010 for $4.1 million, according to NY Mag.
Back when the historic house—built in 1854—was destroyed, other angry messages popped up in the East Village, with one reading: “The destruction of an irreplaceable historic building for what??? Another ugly yuppie ghetto catering to monied transients + Euro-Trash!!! F—k you + your ugliness.” (Obscenity censored by The Hollywood Reporter.)
A rep for Schwimmer declined to comment.
