A New York performance artist went viral on Saturday after eating a ridiculous modern art display at the Art Basel gallery in Miami.
The display consisted of an ordinary banana that was taped to a white wall with a piece of duct tape. Somehow, the banana was sold for a whopping price of $120,000 to an unknown buyer. The piece was created by Italian “artist” Maurizio Cattelan, and the ridiculous transaction was answered of accusations of money laundering.
Banana update –@galerieperrotin tells us: “The first edition of Maurizio Cattelan's banana was sold at 1:15PM. Edition two sold at 3:30PM, and we are in discussions regarding edition three with a museum. Maurizio is seriously back." https://t.co/MVFrS4CWGQ@ArtBasel Miami Beach pic.twitter.com/23dHVRBOuz

The museum reportedly was allowed to regularly replace the banana when it started to become rotten, but the piece of duct tape is kept in place.
The banana will have to be replaced after a performance artist named David Datuna simply approached it and began eating it. Onlookers of the so-called art display reacted in shock as Datuna simply retrieved the fruit from its duct tape, unpeeled it, and took a bite.
Datuna was escorted out of the museum after helping himself, but it doesn’t appear he’s going to face criminal charges for damaging the so-called work of art. Either the museum curators are in on a transparent money laundering scheme surrounding the banana’s $120,000 sale, or realize secretly that the masterpiece is little more than an everyday banana that can be easily replaced.
In somewhat fitting fashion, Datuna styled his consumption of the banana as a work of art in itself. The “performance artist” apparently engages in other stunts for artistic purposes, but it’s likely he was indulging his own sense of humor in eating Cattelan’s banana display.
It’s a bizarre world we’re living in, in which cosmopolitan elites seek to display their cultural superiority over the unenlightened masses through idolizing something that’s plainly foolish and ridiculous to the ordinary person.
BLM Supporter Charged With Attempted Murder After Driving into Crowd of Trump Supporters in Parking Lot
A woman has been arrested and charged with attempted murder after driving through a crowd of Donald Trump supporters demonstrating in a Yorba Linda, California parking lot.
The Trump supporters had arrived in the conservative-leaning California city to counter a Breonna Taylor Black Lives Matter event. Conservatives and BLM protestors had opposed one another on opposite sides of a street, with the former hailing insults and some projectiles at the former.
The victims of the attack weren’t blocking a public roadway, a dangerous tactic that ANTIFA and Black Lives Matter militants have frequently used. They were standing in a parking lot.

The woman who was driving the white Nissan used in the attack was arrested by Orange County Sheriff’s Deputies shortly after the incident. Photography reveals she was wearing riot gear being used by nearby Black Lives Matter protestors who were active in the nominally conservative Orange County city.
The driver has been identified as Tatiana Turner of Long Beach. She’s been charged with assault with a deadly weapon and attempted murder.
It’s somewhat of a surprise that a leftist terrorist is being held accountable by the criminal justice system in California. It remains to be seen if Democrat-aligned prosecutors will attempt to drop the charges in the case, enabling Turner to get away with the vicious assault.
