NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WTVF) -- The Nathan Bedford Forrset statue along the side of I-65 in Nashville was vandalized.

WTVF reports that it's unclear when the statue that sits on private land was painted pink.

The statue was put into place nearly 20 years ago and has been vandalized multiple times throughout the years.

The vandalism comes just days after the City of Memphis removed two Confederate monuments honoring Nathan Bedford Forrest and Jefferson Davis.
