It appears David Mahler may have run afoul of people on both sides of the controversy over Confederate monuments in New Orleans.

His company, H&O Investments, was contracted to remove the controversial monuments. They backed out of the contract after receiving death threats, according to  a report from WAFB.

Mahler was awakened by a 1 am phone call on Tuesday. The caller said Mahler's $200,000 Lamborghini had been set ablaze. The vehicle was a total loss.

This begs the question, was this done because he took the job, or because he backed out?
