NFL Player's Home Vandalized with KKK and Swatiska Graffiti

MOONACHIE, N.J. (CBSNewYork) — An NFL player’s home in New York was vandalized with swatiska and KKK graffiti on Tuesday.

New York Giants fullback Nikita Whitlock told CBS New York the first he saw when he walked in to his Moonachie home was a graffiti swastika on the wall which he’s covered up to protect his 6-year-old son.

He went on to discover the letters “KKK” scrawled in his basement apartment, in addition to the words, “Go back to Africa.”

The second year Giant has lived in his apartment for less than six months. This is the second break in he’s endured.

He tells CBS2’s Valerie Castro that this time, his wife Ashley and their two young children were only away for a few hours when the vandals made their way in through a small window.

Ashley says their sense of security is gone along with some jewelry and video game systems. Several other electronics were left behind, but the offensive graffiti made it a more personal experience.

Police are still investigating the first break-in that took place over the Thanksgiving holiday.
