Seriously. Fuck Fred Radke. Fuck him right in the face. I knew this would happen. Fred Radke better known as the notorious Gray Ghost of New Orleans, has ruined millions of dollars worth of street art, countless joys, and wasted precious hours of hard work in one sweep of his gray paint brush… and now he’s defaced the Banksy pieces that were meant to commemorate the anniversary of Hurrican Katrina. The NoLa Rising MySpace blog explains it best from the profound meanings of Banksy’s work to the retarded New Orleans police department who turn a blind eye to the Gray Ghost’s vigilantism. Read it and weep for New Orleans.
The local business owners affected need to take a stand and sue the gray pants off Fred Radke. And end this war on art, on culture, on snitching and vigilantism, on hypocrisy, and just plain ugliness.
