Feces-laced grafitti is the latest, most disgusting trend to pop up in San Francisco.
The NBC Bay Area Investigative Unit decided to survey parts of downtown San Francisco in search of needles, trash, and feces when they discovered unique graffiti.
The markings were found along sidewalks on two different blocks: 700 block of Ellis Street, between Polk and Larkin Streets, and the 500 block of Larkin Street, between Eddy and Turk Streets.
Big ol' piles of poop were also found next to the markings, hinting to what substance the graffiti consisted of. However, NBC Bay Area did not test the graffiti to confirm the presence of feces.
Mayor London Breed promised cleaner streets within 3 months of being sworn in but more than four months later the streets have seen no improvement and instead just feature creative new designs.
NBC compared Breed’s first three months in office with the three months prior, looking at San Francisco 311 data, and found an 8 percent increase in complaints regarding used needles, 3 percent increase concerning trash, and 30 percent increase regarding human feces.
"I don't think it's because the city is actually dirtier," Breed said. "I think it's because more people are reporting the challenges that exist."
