Kidult T-shirt Giveaway at Hermes’ London Store

This article was posted by Kenny Beats 2 years, 8 months, 1 week, 6 days, 5 hours, 4 minutes ago.

Kidult hit the streets of London to hand out his free “BRANDalizingHermes inspired T-shirts. Apparently a group of people had gathered around the Bond Street Hermes store in anticipation of Kidult’s arrival, which possibly led to increased police presence in the area for the event. Almost immediately Kidult was removed from the crowd, and detained by the police who believed he was “suspected of having stolen goods”; only adding to the size of the crowd outside the store. He was released from custody without charge nearly 2 hours later, a reasonable price to pay for the exposure his antics are sure to attract.

I really wish you guys wouldn’t gas this swagless toy up so much, Talk to the community more, click around on the internet looking for lame shit to repost less. There are like 20 articles about this douche. People would take this newsfeed a little more seriously if you occasionally wrote something about the million other people who actually do real graffiti, or street art, or anything other than media events and disguised voice videos. It’s like Banksy but with no talent. His entire career this kid did what? 4 horribly executed extinguisher tags total. I saw a video, dude stopped mid letter like a bitch, he was looking more skiddish than his own shit stained underwear looked after his publicity stunt. Mr. anti retail is making tshirts, what a surprise, lets get that “news” out there ASAP.

We aren’t “gasing” Kidult, but rather covering whats out there. No one can argue that he isn’t making noise; you certainly felt passionate enough to write a paragraph hating on his campaign… There are plenty of writers who spend 20 years getting up in alleys and cutty spots, AND spin-offs like Kidult who’s marketing savvy puts them on the front page overnight. That’s what we are interested in, more so than his work; covering both sides. If you have a better story feel free to email it to .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address) and we would be happy to include your voice on our feed.
