Banksy arrest is one big Hoax!

Rumours on the internet say that the world famous and still unknown street artist Banksy is arrested and that his identity is revealed. I was a bit skeptical when I heard the news and I probably felt it right because this might be one big hoax.

As noted on business insider:

Don't believe it — the whole thing seems to be a hoax. We just placed a call to London's Metropolitan Police, who confirmed that the Banksy is still safely under cover.
The details in the press release are quite specific. It claims that Banksy is Paul William Horner, a 39-year old male born in Bristol, England. And it says that he's "currently being held without bail on charges of vandalism, conspiracy, racketeering and counterfeiting."

Maybe the joke came from Banksy himself? Or is it just stupid luck that people instantly believe a rumour? Tell me what you think in the comment section below.

I think it's auto-marketing to relocate Banksy on everyone's lips
