Due to this:

“I’m done with them. That’s why the mural is painted over,” Sherry said. She said that during the 2004 restoration, which took almost a year, she worked on the mural six days a week for almost a year and was only compensated for transportation and lunch. “It was an absolute nightmare,” she said. “All they could pay me was coming out of their poor little pockets, so I accepted it because at the time I could afford to take a lot of time to do this. … So I basically just did the work, and they let it go to hell again.

There was a theory that murals discourage graffiti. I don’t know well that theory worked out…

The offending photo, reposted today.

That’s over the line, IMO.

Here’s a two-step fix – tone down the Saturation by sliding left and then brighten up the remaining sunburned-looking patch on the forehead using Replace Color:

Is this impermissible photo manipulation?

IDK, but it’s certainly closer to IRL than what I started with…

But now I see it’s just another promotion for a business idea / patent.
