Shocking pictures show Paris streets littered with garbage — sparking a viral hashtag trashing the French capital’s socialist mayor.
The hashtag #SaccageParis — meaning trashed Paris — has recently gone viral on Twitter as locals share depressing images of the picturesque City of Lights now seemingly overflowing with garbage in some streets.
The “once beautiful city” has been transformed “into a rat-infested garbage pile” was tweeted with one of many images of apparent decay, with others showing walls covered in ugly graffiti.
Many of those using the hashtags have taken aim at socialist mayor Anne Hidalgo, including far-right leader Marine Le Pen.
