Chris Cornell’s Widow Reacts To ‘False Narrative’ About Statue Vandalism

August 28, 2020

Chris Cornell‘s widow Vicky Cornell has urged followers to stop spreading misinformation regarding “Save the Children’s” involvement in the vandalization of the late singer’s statue outside Seattle’s MoPop museum last week.

Vicky said she was heartbroken to learn that the bronze statue of the Soundgarden frontman, donated by his family to the museum, was defaced with white paint last Thursday.

She made it clear that it was done not in the course of riots or protests, but “a threat that was carried out by a single disturbed individual at 6am in an attempt to besmirch Chris’s legacy.”

On Monday, she made another statement on Chris Cornell’s Instagram account.

According to her, a few days prior to the vandalism, someone wrote in sidewalk chalk “Save the Children” in front of the statue, which was washed away in the night rain.

Vicky said it is upsetting to see “these same people falsely blaming others.” She requested them to stop spreading misinformation and fomenting discord, “as it tarnishes Chris’ legacy, masks the truth, and hurts those who Chris loved as well as Chris’ true fan.”
