Poll: Should Ben’s Chili Bowl Take Down Its Bill Cosby Mural?

Bill Cosby’s face is still colorfully emblazoned on the wall at Ben’s Chili Bowl, and that’s making some people restless. Last week, local street artist Smear Leader defaced the Cosby image with a sticker of Kim Jong-un’s face and yesterday, we reported on a new petition and Kickstarter campaign to paint over the controversial mural with something that “celebrates women and their accomplishments.”

So what are your thoughts? Should the mural come down, or is it too significant to warrant removal?

The poll will close Tuesday at 6 PM.
