Banksy’s Gaza Kitten Is Shaming Your Internet Habits

No one throws a guilt trip quite like Banksy.

Case in point: The street artist just released a two-minute video (see link below)  that shows him sneaking into Gaza to embellish the area’s bombed-out ruins. The video satirizes travel ads in typical heavy-handed Banksy style.

It also features three new pieces: a man knelt in grief, children using an Israeli guard tower as an amusement-park ride, and a kitten with an enormous pink bow. “A local man came up and said ‘Please — what does this mean?”” Banksy writes in the kitten’s caption. “I explained I wanted to highlight the destruction in Gaza by posting photos on my website —but on the internet people only look at pictures of kittens.” He isn’t subtle, but he gets his point across.
