ART: Reddit Sleuths Get Graffiti Artist Banned From 20% Of US
Written by streetsconnect on June 25, 2016
Graffiti artist Casey Nocket was caught by users on Reddit and has now been banned from public lands. Cenk Uygur and Ana Kasparian, hosts of The Young Turks, break it down. Tell us what you think in the comment section below.
“A graffiti artist has been banned from all national parks and other federally administered land – that’s more than 20% of the US – for vandalism after Redditusers tracked her down on social media.
Casey Nocket was also sentenced to 200 hours of community service and a fine for drawing faces in acrylic paint in at least six national parks: Death Valley, Colorado National Monument, Canyonlands, Zion and Crater Lake.
Under each picture she left her tag “Creepytings”, which was also the name of her Tumblr blog and Instagram account.
After Nocket wrote in an Instagram post that she had used acrylic paint – which is very difficult to clean off – another user questioned her about it and she responded: “I know, I’m a bad person.”*
Nocket’s devil-may-care attitude came back to haunt her, however, when outraged Reddit users tracked her down and reported her to the National Parks Service.
