London police have opened an investigation after a sticker of the Palestinian flag was used on a statue of late British singer Amy Winehouse to cover up the Star of David on her necklace.

The sticker was found yesterday in north London’s Camden Market, where the statue was erected in 2014, according to the BBC.

The BBC quotes a Met Police spokesperson as saying that authorities understand the incident “will have caused upset to many people.”

Winehouse, who was Jewish, was a six-time Grammy Award winner. She died from alcohol poisoning in 2011 at the age of 27.
