kay yow.jpgIn what is possibly the most tasteless act of graffiti in history, vandals have defaced mural depicting the late North Carolina State women's basketball coach Kay Yow.

Yow battled a very public, decades-long battle with breast cancer before passing away Jan. 24.

The offenders added a blue mustache and the phrase "cancer rules" to the portrait.

Classy.
