Accuracy in Media

A large mural of Michelle Obama in Chicago, Illinois was painted in the neighborhood where she grew up. However, the artist did not correctly attribute it, according to another artist:

But the mural, by Chicago artist Chris Devins, has sparked intense debate — and not for the usual political reasons.
Shortly after Devins finished the mural last Friday, criticism began bubbling up online. People accused him of copying the image from Rhode Island art student Gelila Mesfin, who had posted a nearly identical portrait of Michelle Obama on Instagram last year.

    Chris Devins is a thief and the lady artist named Gelila Mesfin who originally did the same generously over-embellished portrait will sue his butt. What a jerk! Yes, Michael never looked so good… Way back to his roots!

    The left worships people over God. Sad.
