BP Summer Olympic Billboard Vandalized

Vandals protesting BP's environmental practices earlier this month defaced a BP billboard advertising the summer Olympic Games in London, according to media reports.

BP, which is still seeking to restore its image following the Deepwater Horizon oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico in 2010, is the official fuel and gas provider for the Olympics, which kick off Friday.

According to media reports, black oil paint was spread on a six-paneled billboard sitting above Cromwell Road in London, as was the web address for f-ingthefuture, a website that is protesting BP's involvement in the Olympics.
