Don’t mess with Texas, but more specifically, don’t mess with Austin’s “I love you so much” wall.

After the famed and highly-photographed mural on South Congress Avenue was defaced overnight, Austinites took to Twitter to express their displeasure with the act of vandalism.

As one Twitter user pointed out, the wall has previously been vandalized and restored.

According to a sign posted on the since painted over wall, the mural will be repainted by the original artist between March 6-10.

Just in time for South by Southwest, the wall will be looking like its old self and photo ready.
