DENVILLE - A man in Denville says he has painted his home with bright purple paint and decorated it with huge pink ribbons to raise awareness of two life-threatening diseases.

John Pinto says he painted his home on Franklin Road purple in honor of lupus patients and added the pink ribbons for breast cancer awareness.

Neighbors have spoken out against the change in appearance and say his extreme makeover is a deliberate ploy to annoy them.

They say they don't believe Pinto's claim to know victims of both diseases.
