This had just happened on the 5th. Here's some comments from a French publication:

"Officially known as "Dirty Corner," the giant steel funnel that artist Anish Kapoor himself has described as "very sexual" was covered in anti-Semitic graffiti in white paint, said Versailles president Catherine Pegard.

"Phrases such as "Queen sacrificed, twice insulted" and "the second rape of the nation by deviant Jewish activism" covered the sculpture by the British-Indian artist.

""This act of intolerable violence against the work of an international artist shocks and saddens me," Pegard told journalists after inspecting the damage."

They had an excellent guide standing there to field questions and share the sadness felt by everyone associated with Versailles that such vandalism should happen at all. The artist himself had decided not to have it removed.
