Artist Who Created Iconic Symbol of Hope & Change for the Entire World Gets Beaten Up by Danish Leftists


It just wasn’t supposed to end up this way, was it?

From The Atlantic:

Shepard Fairey’s latest work has not been well received in Denmark. Last weekend, a group of angry thugs called Fairey “Obama illuminati” and then proceeded to beat up him and a friend after the opening of his exhibition in Copenhagen, leaving the world famous graffiti artist with a black eye and a bruised rib. Fairey refused to report the assault to the police– “The only thing I could see coming out of it was further media commentary like ‘street artist whiner Shepard Fairey can’t hold it down in a fight so he snitches to the cops,” Fairey said — so the incident wasn’t reported until Friday when The Guardian got the scoop.

I’ll give him this much… he certainly has a higher tolerance for an ass-kicking than Don Lemon.
