Overshadowed by Past Rape Comments, David Choe’s Mural at the Bowery Wall is Defaced
It took less than a week for the latest mural at the Bowery wall to get completely vandalized.
David Choe completed his colorful mishmash last Tuesday. Four days later, an epic tag was sprayed across the length of the artwork, courtesy of the Big Time Mafia graf crew.
It’s certainly no surprise why…
Choe is most certainly not welcome here, largely due to past comments made on his podcast bragging about an alleged sexual encounter with a masseuse in 2014. Critics have been accusing him of rape ever since.
According to Buzzfeed, during said podcast with porn star co-host Asa Akira, Choe apparently said, among other things:
In my head I go “Do you care if I jerk off right now?” and it sounds so creepy in my head that I go I can’t say that out loud … So I go back to the chill method of you never ask first, you just do it, get in trouble and then pay the price later.
…So I just start jerking off. So then her hands gets off my leg and she just stops … I go “Look I’m sorry I can’t help myself — can you just pretend like I’m not doing this and you continue with the massage?” And she’s like “All right” and she does … I’m like “Can I touch your butt?” and I reach out and touch her butt and she pulls away. She doesn’t want me to touch her butt.
…I say “Kiss it a little,” she says “No, all the massage oil is on it” and I take the back of her head and I push it down on my d**k and she doesn’t do it. And I say “Open your mouth, open your mouth,” and she does it and I start facef**king her.
He later backpedaled by claiming stories on the show were just that, and “not a representation of my reality,” and that the confession was simply “bad storytelling in the style of douche.”
Goldman Properties, owner and curator of the wall, has yet to publicly comment on the growing controversy of David Choe.
