A 12-metre “Last Supper” billboard by New York Best at the Msida skatepark has been vandalised with the image of Christ peeled off the poster.

The billboard depicted Jesus Christ and his disciples eating a New York Best pizza, burgers and chips and drinking milkshakes.

The artwork, designed by Daniel Mercieca, raised the ire of several people who were scandalised and even complained to the police asking for action to be taken.

Video from Tommy Diacono's Facebook page

New York best owner Tommy Diacono uploaded a video of the billboard being vandalised on his Facebook page saying: "There are people removing our billboard. Don't you know he will be back in 3 days..."

And Desmond Falzon, of the Moviment Patrijotti Maltin, proudly posted photos of the vandalised billboard on his Facebook page writing "We done what had to be done".
