Prepare for a watered down version of the street art anyone cares about, where political statements that may cause offense are too much.

Deitch's inglorious stumbling included asking Blu to play along. Blu was quoted by the LA Times:

It is censorship that almost turned into self-censorship when they asked me to openly agree with their decision to erase the wall. In Soviet Union they were calling it 'self-criticism.'

Deitch invited me to paint another mural over the one he erased, and I will not do that.

See the backstory.
