PBR Mural No More?

We first noticed the Pabst Blue Ribbon mural at 222 E. Roosevelt St. in June. Today it's a deep shade of red (though you can still make out the two "beer angels").

The mural and PBR campaign has received a share of tagging backlash in the past few months. We have a call in to the PBR marketing department to see if they're responsible for painting over the mural.
 
In the meantime, does anyone know what happened?
