The Nathan Bedford Forrest statue on the side of Interstate 65 in Nashville has been vandalized.

At this time, it’s unclear when the statue - which sits on private land - was hit with pink paint.

The statue was installed nearly 20-years-ago and has been vandalized numerous times over the years.

This comes just days after the City of Memphis removed two Confederate monuments honoring Forrest and Jefferson Davis.
