banksy_2Most blamed the attack on Banksy’s paintings earlier this week on vandals with paintball guns, however the illegal paintings were actually marred with paint filled balloons. A British paintball company issued a press release this morning to stop everyone from scapegoating their beloved guns, which “only fire small balls of harmless, fully biodegradable gelatine and certainly could never be loaded with a balloon.”

“Paintball is a popular, well organised section of the leisure industry in the UK, enjoyed by young and old and ought not to be inaccurately connected to acts of vandalism in this way.”

They’re totally right: paintball guns should only get credit for spectacular acts of vandalism they’re used in, like the billboard attack after the jump.
