  2. Human species is the stupidest on earth

  3. Not art – more like trash

  4. After Trump been elected by Americans as their president, no stupidity surprises me anymore. So this art thing didn’t come as a surprise either.

  6. With a show of hands, who believes this was a genuine transaction for "art" and has absolutely nothing to do with money laundering?

  12. I swear to God i'm so sick and tired of stupid ignorant people in the United States. These fucks will do anything to get a like on their instagram account. They are "Like" whores. From the ridiculousness of people supporting trump to people like these lining up to take a picture with a fucking banana. These people have no brains and can't think for themselves. It's actually very sad.

  15. if stupid or "WTF really" and "that what get pass as art these days" get people talking. i guess it worked

  17. I don’t know what is worst, the banana or the egg? 😐 society i am confused…

  18. You can throw up anything on the wall and call it art.
    I don't mind that.
    What I do mind and hate is that just one artist got all the press.
    There are thousands of great artists who get NO press. And that part is shameful.

  19. Some people say ART can be Pretentious.
    Those people are Right.

  20. This is about the banana man spending money on rubbish, it proves how art wastefully spend their money and not on charities ,thats my art option. 🤔
