Plymouth Rock has been vandalized with graffiti as the Massachusetts town that bears its name prepares for the 400th anniversary of the pilgrims’ arrival in America. 

The landmark designated to honor when the pilgrims first stepped on the continent in 1620 was found vandalized Monday, in addition to the Pilgrim Maiden statue and the National Monument to the Forefathers, according to local TV station WBZ.

The message on the monument was an obscene one directed at police, USA Today reported.

“We are saddened and sickened by the recent vandalism in our historic town,” Plymouth town manager Melissa Arrighi tweeted. “We will begin clean up as soon as possible and the police are investigating.”
