Aussies are not happy with the latest celebrity mural to pop up on the streets of Melbourne, this time taking a cheap shot at a very sensitive topic. 

Melbourne street artist, Lushsux, has painted a mural of Kanye in a straight-jacket with ‘loony’ stars around his head and tongue sticking out following the rapper's mental health breakdown and hospitalisation.  

As always, people have commented their opinions for and against the mural, with some saying it is an artistic expression out of love for Kanye and others writing it is disgusting and simply not okay. 

Whatever the artist’s intention here is, mental health struggles can affect any person at any age and shouldn't be trivialised. 

If you or someone you know is struggling with mental health, you can contact Beyond Blue here or call on 1300 22 4636.
