The original piece wasn't shabby, better then the one he replaced it with. Not saying it's beef, but I would have gone over the elephant too if it were me. There is/was a lot of not so great pieces on that wall he could have capped. I don't know if those two crews have beef or not, but they prolly do now.
Glad I'm up north where there isn't a lot of writers to compete for space with. When I do get capped it's by a toy and I return the favor the next day.
