Tipster Amanda sent us this picture of dirty, unemployed patchouli monster Penn Badgley participating in yesterday’s yesterday’s Occupy Wall Street march by holding a sign (handcrafted by a Tea Partier, it seems) and demanding the return of the Glass-Steagall Act. For some reason he (or the original signmaker) filled in all the holes in the letters—maybe to represent how he/the protesters have “had their fill” of corporate greed? What does it mean.
At some point during the day, the Gossip Girl star and Zoe Kravitz romancer was spotted wearing a Kangol hat and talking about how he’d like to use his fame for good. He also said he prefers the term “public artist” to “celebrity.” Given that he mixed it up in the streets just like any old prole, he probably deserves to be called whatever he wants to be called (not to be interpreted as an endorsement of economic parity, or of patchouli).
Not spotted at the protest: 99.9 per cent of all other public artists. [Image by tipster Amanda]
