An Interview With The Pug Who Vandalized A Banksy

When Freddi the Pug peed on a Banksy, he caused quite the controversy. To get to the bottom of it, I had to get to know the pug himself, through his instagram and a brief interview.

What did your mom have to say about this?

F: Oh, she was surprised for sure and a little angry at first but she's used to these kind of pug antics from me. Plus, you can't stay mad at this face for very long.

Some people are saying it was disrespectful to pee on a 9/11 memorial. Do you regret that?

F: I can see how that seems disrespectful now and I apologize. But man, I'm a New Yorker and an artist but above all that: I'm a pug. I didn't process the content, I just knew it was a Banksy and I thought I'd tell the world what I thought about his art.

So you don't like Banksy's work?

F: No need to put words in my mouth. He's all about everyone experiencing and seeing his art, so I experienced it the most intimate way I knew how.
