A sneaky San Antonio graphic designer has made label alterations in local grocery aisles in the name of Black Lives Matter.
On Friday, the Portland Mercury's Alex Zielinski, a San Antonio Current alum, tweeted photos of some normal looking grocery items that is, until you read the labels.
"One of my San Antonio friends has been using his graphic design skillz to re-label grocery store cans with facts about local/national police issues and Im so impressed," her tweet reads.
The pictures show Jif peanut butter converted to read Blm, Campbell's soup cans featuring the names of Breonna Taylor and Marquise Jones both of whom were shot by police and the pièce de résistance, Ocean Spray canned cranberries altered to read "San Antonio City just added $8.1 Million to the Police Budget."
According to Zielinski, her unnamed friend doesn't want to get internet famous for his guerrilla protest tactics: "He doesn't want recognition, just wants to elevate these issues," she said in a subsequent tweet.
From what we can tell from the price labels visible in the pictures, these altered goods look to have been placed on the shelves of local H-E-Bs. So, anyone seeking a limited-edition BLM can of Spam may want to keep their eyes peeled on their next grocery run.
Ill bet theres a pretty hefty fine for this.
This guy needs to open up a can of “Got my ass whooped”.
“He doesn’t want recognition, just wants to elevate these issues,”
by graphitying proprerty that doesn’t belong to him? that’s what it amounts too. and this clueless woman who thought to share it is enabling a disrespectful, property destroying fool.
this seriously is akin to the rioters thinking it is ok to steal and destroy stores merchandise.
It would sit on the shelf and rot before I’d even touch it.
It’s probably a federal regulation with regard to “food tampering” that’s being violated. HEB could most likely be held liable in some way IF the don’t immediately remove them.
I doubt he’ll ever be punished.
Someone should do the same showing deaths and violence by communist and Marxist governments.
Time for a complete inventory check!
I would first let it be known that I don;t like being preached at while grocery shopping. If the intrusions continued, I would stop coming to that shop.
This is parasitic behavior.
They did not pay for that shelf space, the wholeseller did.
Don't count on it. Is someone afraid to post his picture?
This is nonsense.
As for being ‘anonymous’, apparently the idiots don't watch a lot of true crimes shows. Everyone knows a grocery store is going to be COVERED with security cameras.
What a complete waste of talent....
I hope thats an earn one can, get the second one free kind of deal.
No, just another self-righteous ahole . This one with some artistic skill
In this environment, what corporation would dare press charges.
Those are much better. Kramer tried to help by taking the dessicants out of the clothing. Those AIDS ribbons will be noticeably musty in three to five years!
Yeah those were fun.
Like I want his meat hooks on food I purchase.
