A pink wall in West Hollywood that has become a go-to spot for selfies over the last few years (because people clearly love selfies in front of pink things) was vandalized this week with a message that seems to convey that someone is sick and tired of all the selfies being taken there.
YES!!!! The pink wall selfie phenomenon has none nothing but completely disrupted our ability to park in our own neighborhood, and incur damage to many of our cars due to tourists who don’t know how to drive and park. #paulsmith #pinkwall pic.twitter.com/fQighBW8CA

“Go Fuck Ur Selfie” was scrawled on the wall – which is one of the most Instagrammed spots in the city, according to LA Mag.

The word “thrash” was also scrawled at the bottom of the wall, which many believe is the signature from Thrashbird, a self-proclaimed “multidisciplinary artist” and “cereal disruptor.”
But, the graffiti didn’t last long, crews were out in just a few hours to remove it.
Paint crews are cleaning up the defaced Pink Wall this afternoon in West Hollywood. They're done with "Go" and "Fuck." Now they're on to "Ur" and "Selfie." pic.twitter.com/Nw6g1sC2l1
