There is a growing resentment of Mr. Brainwash amongst street artists in New York. I like to keep this website positive (evident by my sleeping on this post for over a week) but I do feel a certain duty of journalistic integrity to present our viewers with the facts. (Plus, I have been getting too many emails about this to ignore it.) Here is what has been going on.
On November sixth, the following comment was left on The Mongrel by Bombin Magazine:
“THIS STREET ART GEEK FAKE RON JEREMY LOOKING IDIOT WENT OVER MEGHAN MY GIRLFRIENDS REST IN PIECE ON HOUSTON. I WILL CATCH UP TO THIS MR BRAINWASH AND BEAT HIS BRAINS IN!!!”
Two days later their website ran the following:
“POBE MPH avenges Meghan… Fuck MBW”
“That MEGHAN burner that has been rocking on Houston and Bowery for over 2 years was a memorial for one of our fallen sisters. MBW, displaying the ignorance for the rules of the street and an unacceptable disrespect of the deceased common amongst certain art geeks recently (BANKSY, Nick Walker and FKDL), put a legal production over it.
POBE took it back.”

Personally, I only like graffiti that has a strong message of Satanism.
I also like how the owners of this building have apparently abandoned all hope in keeping that wall clean.
Last but not least, all I have to say to Cake about that whole controversy is this:::
You Go Girl!
