Elusive graffiti artist Banksy’s cover was blown when he was unceremoniously arrested for vandalism, conspiracy, racketeering and counterfeiting.
Well that’s what US website the National Report would have you believe.
The bogus story alleged the infamous street artist was arrested following a raid on his London studio.
It ‘outs’ him as Paul Horner, a 34-year-old born in Liverpool and says he is being held “without” bail, along with four other, unnamed individuals.
Banksy's publicist Jo Brooks confirmed to the Independent the now viral story is a hoax.
So basically the internet is now recycling its own hoaxes. Lazy.
