A Confederate statue in Nashville’s Centennial Park was graffitied late Sunday night with the words “They were racists” written on it in red spray paint.

Red paint was also poured over the names of more than 500 Tennessee soldiers inscribed on a plaque on the 50-year-old monument, according to CNN affiliate WZTV.

That monument, dubbed “Silent Sam,” has since been removed.

Many Twitter users celebrated Sunday’s act of vandalism:
