NEW YORK - A New York artist says he didn't mean to be offensive. But some people near Ground Zero don't appreciate James Peterson's latest work.

guerrilla art

Is that what pretentious out of work "artists" call grafitti these days?

Arrest this punk on grounds of common vandalism.

Would it still be Art if someone went up and painted a line through the word "plane" and painted in the word "Muslims" beneath it?

If it was meant to be art ... it isn't.

If it was meant to be funny ... it isn't

He says he didn't mean to offend. B*llsh*t. That's exactly what he meant to do.

Peterson admits he didn't get a permit or permission from the landlord.

I'd suggest that someone paint something on this S.O.B.'s property but he probably doesn't own any. So someone needs to tar and feather him and call it art.

Sounds like he'll be exhibited in the Brooklyn Museum of "Art" any day now.

Jerk.

I'd call him worse, but I don't believe in cursing.

"he didn't mean to be offensive"

He might have added: "I'm just a dumb s**t who didn't realize people who lost loved ones on 9/11 might not appreciate the humor."

Three guesses where Peterson stands on the WOT, and the first two don't count.

True guerrilla art would be a couple of mason jars full of white paint hurtling towards this crap.
