An art piece on display at the Miami Art Basel, which consists of a banana taped to a wall, has again been defaced, with a rouge artist writing billionaire sex offender Jeffrey Epstein “didn’t kill himself” on the wall.
Photos posted on Twitter show the defaced wall, reading, “Epstien (sic) didn’t kill himself.”

The art display from Miami Beach, which is just a banana duct taped to a wall, sold to a New York City gallery for $120,000 last week. Over the weekend, a prankster made waves online after he ate the banana.

The “Epstein didn’t kill himself” meme has been spreading across the internet over the last few months, as many on the internet question the circumstances of the death of Jeffrey Epstein, who reportedly killed himself in a Manhattan jail in August.
