Vandal Attacks Gallery Selling Hunter Biden's Artwork: 'Daddy Is a War Criminal'
Rod Webber was arrested by authorities on Friday
The Soho art gallery set to feature Hunter Biden's artwork was vandalized on Friday by an activist who said he wanted to protest Democrat Joe Biden’s “war crimes.”
Rod Webber was arrested by authorities on Friday, who was described as an “art interrupter" by the New York Post.
Webber walked into the Georges Bergès Gallery in SoHo and spray-painted “Daddy” backward on the wall in red spray-paint.
Webber was quickly grabbed by employees, who could be heard saying, “What, you’re arresting me ’cause your down with Biden’s war crimes?”
“Daddy war crimes! War crimes, baby!” several times throughout the altercation.
This isn't the first time Webber was caught on the wrong side of the law.
The activist made headlines in 2019 after he defaced an art installation that featured a duct-taped banana at Art Basel, scrawling “Epstein [stet] didn’t kill himself,” and gobbling up the fruit.
He then vandalized Jeffrey Epstein’s Florida mansion just months later.
Webber is charged with “assault, criminal mischief, attempted assault, making graffiti, and possession of graffiti instruments."
He reportedly told law enforcement that he did not have an issue with Hunter’s artwork itself.
“I don’t hate it. It’s better than he should be for having only been working on it for a short period of time,” Webber said.
“I was trying to paint the phrase, ‘Daddy is a war criminal.'”
“While Hunter Biden and his artwork is, you know, it’s not bad, it’s curious to me that it’s raising prices of half a million dollars just out of the blue,” he said. “It says to me that there’s some kind of malfeasance there.”
Webber also wrote on Facebook that the “Art Gallery promotes crime family.”
Just last week, former President Barack Obama's ethics chief blasted Biden's White House who made arrangements for the lucrative sale of Hunter Biden's artwork.
The younger Biden, who is apparently an "artist" now, is selling off a collection of his "art" this week in deals expected to earn a fortune for Hunter.
However, the White House arranged to handle the sales and keep the buyers' identities and the amount they paid for the artwork a secret.
The White House announced its ethics plan surrounding the sale of Hunter's pieces on Thursday.
"So instead of disclosing who is paying outrageous sums for Hunter Biden’s artwork so that we could monitor whether the purchasers are gaining access to government, the WH tried to make sure we will never know who they are," Shaub wrote while linking to the Post's report.
"That’s very disappointing."
