The 10-foot high mural has been defaced with brown and white paint and the word 'Slut'

Proving it isn't just the twittersphere where things can get nasty, the public artwork on Gwynne Street, in Melbourne's Cremorne, lasted approximately 24 hours before it was destroyed. The work of graffiti artist Mark Walls (aka Lushsux), it was inspired by the controversial nude selfie Kimmy K posted last week to a tirade of abuse - including some choice remarks from fellow celeb Chloe Grace Moretz.

"I instantly had the need to paint it when I saw it on her Instagram, in public, on a three storey high building," Walls told Pedestrian. "Maybe I'm as much of an attention seeker as she is?" When asked to comment on the vandalism, Walls was philosophical. "I'm pretty bummed, but it was a given considering the subject matter." He's no stranger to controversy, having previously emblazoned an adjoining wall with an impression of Donald Trump's head.

Andddd this is why we can't have nice things @kimkardashian

We're sure Kardashian wouldn't be fazed either. In a blog post last week, she took aim at her slut shamers, writing, "It's 2016. The body-shaming and slut-shaming - it's like, enough is enough. I will not live my life dictated by the issues you have with my sexuality."
