Most blamed the attack on Banksyâ€™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 â€œonly fire small balls of harmless, fully biodegradable gelatine and certainly could never be loaded with a balloon.â€
â€œPaintball 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.â€
Theyâ€™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.
