Cops, Cope2 and Banksy -- ***UPDATE***
Legendary New York graffiti writer Cope2 just posted this picture, which he claims is a collaborations between he and Banksy.
Cope has been hounding Banksy over social media for weeks trying to line up a collaboration with the stencil artist.
So then this stencil just happened. Not sure if it is legit or not. A lot of people are pointing out on Cope's own thread that this piece does not look very complimentary. Its a fat pig with NYPD scrawled over it.
To give this piece a little context, Cope has been accused by other graffiti writers of being a snitch informant to the NYPD.
Like we say, not sure if this piece is an authentic Banksy or not. But what we are really wondering is why Cope would post this unflattering picture?
Guess technically its not even beef. This is more like beef bacon.
***UPDATE -- Late last night, Cope2 removed this photo from his Instagram***
***2nd UPDATE -- Now Cope claims the entire thing was staged by himself. In his own garage. WTF? This whole fiasco comes off as beyond desperate, and why would Cope choose to portray himself as a pig?***
