Mona Lisa Soup

The incident occurred on Sunday when protestors associated with the environmentalist group Riposte Alimentaire threw soup at the painting, which is covered by glass.

Allegedly the protestors were supporting a sustainable food system. French farmers were reportedly protesting too, recently, which may have sparked this incident. As noted in this related article, the women who committed to act wore shirts with the slogan, “FOOD RIPOSTE” written across it.

The two women were subsequently arrested and people were reportedly told to evacuate the room following the incident.

The video footage caught on camera has seemingly been going viral online, which shows the women throwing soup at the masterpiece.
