Some German residents who opted out of Google's Street View service received a hostile response on Saturday, when an unspecified number of homes, all of which appear blurred on Google Street View, were egged by vandals, Deutsche Welle reports.
According to Search Engine Land and Deutsche Welle, people believed to be "Google fans" reportedly hurled eggs at several Essen homes that had been blurred. Notes that read "Google's cool" were found attached to the mailboxes in front of the homes.
"We don't yet have any leads pointing to a perpetrator," a spokesperson for the Essen police department told Deutsche Welle.
