I don't know anything about this guy or his art. Just going by this video, this woman is the idiot. I don't understand what she might have said and what it's consequences might have been, but she was being juvenile and self-centered--"Oh, look, a pap is talking to me! I want to seem nice so everyone will like me!"

It seems she was going to say something that would have had consequences and that, once said, could never be undone. Maybe it was criminal or career consequences. Maybe she was going to spill stuff that simply wasn't anybody else's business. Mistakes are understandable, but since she was making them out of immaturity and selfishness, he had to stop her immediately before irreparable damage was done.

And by the way--it's amazing how many "he's a horrible guy" commenters must be perfect in how they talk to their significant others. How about you guys bring forth your significant others' and we'll ask them how perfectly respectful you've been your entire lives.

By the way, I'm a woman, not a man just defending another man.

Its clear that is why he married an Asian woman. He feels the right to talk down to her and that's what he gets off on.

these people are so ******* quick to judge him.. this is this mans ******* life most of it is illegal most the stuff that he does is SACRED its his business its HIS life not anyone elses he probably told his WIFE because HE TRUSTED her thats what HUSBANDS do right? tell their wife because he trusted her and she ****** up by spilling the beans to ******* strangers... you dont do that! That is straight disrespect on her part!

SHE ****** UP CASE CLOSED & HE IS NOT AN ******* DOUCHE NONE OF THAT... HE IS "HUMAN" & KEEPING IT REAL (DONT SPREAD MY BUSINESS)!

Douche-bag. If I was his wife I would have socked him in the face for degrading me, especially ON CAMERA.

Be a MAN. Be gentleman! You could have just whispered to your wife. You don't deserve to be in a relationship at all. A real man does not humiliate a woman. I hope you apologize to her in public too.

Yeah, Mr. Sheep Art FAIL big time here...

======================================

nice to meet you LoHs1, finally someone else who sees the big picture with this subversive (artistry).

OBEY your Masters ???

>To you as well... @The Seeker

---When he started in with all the pro-Obama crap after not really knowing what his true motives were, was wrong. (IMF/ world bankers/ wall street etc.) He's blind (for real).

I tweeted this out... @harveylevinTMZ SheepArt FAIL; here he shows his full character of being pretentiously un-enigmatic. Shepard Fairey #obey #tarnishedbrand

I also recently moved into a living here in the heart of the Arts District of DTLA. I know a few people BFD, anyway... I also hear now Amanda is a pushy busy body of a broad. I've never met them, or care to; but his carbon copy of a “fight club” existence needs to progress into a different direction eventually; or, He'll go down as the "Fiesta Ware" artist of this generation; even if that is divorce (broken home for his kids), whatever. No love . I saw this guy at an opening (DJ) and didn't care 1 iota. Surely his brand is tarnished by this more.

And right on... Brian Bitchmore 6 hours ago
Shepard Fairey lost his case to Associated Press for robbing the infamous Hope Poster from Manny Garcia now he is a misogynist for humiliating and abusing his Asian wife in public at LAX? Is this the Graffiti street hero of our time? The Artist featured by Deitch in MOCA's ART IN THE STREETS? Shepard Phoney is a RIP OFF ARTIST who operates under False Pretense, Lies, Deceptions, Willful Infringement, Copyright Violations including being an awful husband etc. Shepard Fairey has the opportunity to win back his street credibility along with his soiled reputation as a Husband and ostracized honor by meeting the Phantom Street Artist in the Cage for a benefit fight.

this rocks!v> > > http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pDUzLe6-YVk
