Vandals last week defaced a Spanish memorial for a slain 8-year-old boy with graffiti urging the abuse of men and boys. 

The whale-shaped monument to Gabriel Cruz is located in Almeria, Spain, where locals call it “The Whale of Gabriel and the Good People.” El Español reported that graffiti was discovered on the memorial Tuesday.

“Become a feminist and abuse the male, whether he is a boy or a man,” it read.

Cruz disappeared in February 2018. His body was recovered 12 days later after widespread media attention and a nationwide search involving 3,000 volunteers and 2,000 professional rescuers. Ana Julia
