A $120,000 banana taped to a wall was vandalized a second time, after a New York performance artist initially ate it.
Photos and video posted Sunday from the Miami art gallery where the artwork was being displayed showed that someone had taken the banana and [written] “Epstein didn’t kill himself” in its place.
The article goes on to state the following:
Police arrested 46-year-old Roderick Webber for the graffiti vandalism. He is being charged with criminal mischief. “This is the gallery where anyone can do art, right?” Webber told security before his arrest, according to the Miami Herald.
The Daily Wire succinctly summarized events in a story about the “mischief:
First, a work of “art” — a banana duct-taped to a wall — sold for $120,000. Then, a guy ate it right off the wall.
And then, another guy scrawled a message in lipstick where the banana had once hung — “Epstien [sic] didn’t kill himself.”
That’s a crazy week.

I can’t stop watching this video of David Datuna eating the $150,000 banana at Art Basil. To me it sets a really bad precedent; what if someone walks into the Louvre and eats the Mona Lisa? pic.twitter.com/HKVz9Fyjfc

The man who ate the $120,000 art installation featuring a banana duct-taped to a wall is far from apologetic: “It wasn’t vandalism, it was art performance from me and absolutely I am not sorry.” https://t.co/z92UOqJ8eO
