From the good people at ANIMAL NY, we have this fun tidbit.A Shepard Fairey mural in Miami featuring the artist’s signature “OBEY” logo of Andre the Giant was apparently defaced recently with a giant “1%.”

The move is either in support of the one percent — the opposite of the Occupy Wall Street concept of the 99 percent — or might be implying that Mr. Fairey is himself a member of the one percent.

The guy did help elect a (centrist) Democratic president! Though he also owns a clothing label. Tough call!
