Vandal Wants Royalties!

Cecilia Gimenez, the octogenarian who overpainted and ruined Elias Garcia Martinez's Ecce Homo (Behold The Man) in the Sanctuary of Mercy Church in Borja, Spain, is now demanding royalties for her vandalism, because so many tourists are coming to the church to see what she did! She wants to give the money to charity (CLICK). What about the cost of restoring the fresco she ruined?

She has been slated by the BBC too who have called her attempt at restoring the painting, a hairy monkey. Although she is offering to donate the money to charity, it is a cheek that she is even asking at all. They will now have to fork out for restoring the painting properly.
