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.

    I'm sorry, but that's funny on so many levels.

    Does this mean that the Danes didn`t fall for the "Hoax and Chains", or did they, but now they have seen the light and want rid of it as we do ?

    And now… The Left begins to FEED on itself. ( How predictable was that? )

    A shiner and a 'bruised' rib… In Doug's neighborhood, that's how they say How ya' doin' man? His 'attackers' ( equally effeminate ) Beat me w/ a wet noodle!

    After reading the story at Weasel Zippers, I gather that the lefty Danes thought the street artist had sold out, even after his work with them. Universal lefty loonacy !
