"Last weekend, some Danes beat up […] street artist Shepard Fairey outside a nightclub calling him an “Obama illuminati” and telling him to “go back to America.” According to the Guardian, Fairey inadvertently stepped into a political controversy when he placed a “peace” mural on a site that is still rife with conflict and in the process he enraged the country’s leftist anarchists. Since it was completed, his mural has been vandalized with numerous slogans but one stands out as perhaps the best diss of a Fairey mural known to humanity, ‘Go Home, Yankee Hipster.’”
