Hilarious tweets after Banksy’s million dollar painting ‘self destructs’


British street artist Banksy shocked the world when he pulled off one of the most elaborate and spectacular pranks on Friday night.

Banksy’s iconic painting “Girl With Balloon” shows a girl reaching out to a red heart-shaped balloon. It was up for auction at Sotheby’s Auction House in London this weekend when within seconds of being sold for a record-breaking £1,042,000, the painting was shredded into ribbons.

Alex Branczik, Sotheby’s senior director and head of contemporary art, Europe London, said: “It appears we just got Banksy-ed.”

Here are some hilarious tweets following this stunt:
