NYC gallery selling Hunter Biden art gets vandalized

A conspiracy theorist known for his high-profile shenanigans was busted Friday for vandalizing the Manhattan gallery where Hunter Biden’s art pieces are being sold.

Rod Webber — who once famously ate an art installation of a real banana — walked into the Georges Berges Gallery in SoHo around 4 p.m. and sprayed painted “Daddy” backwards on the wall, according to a video posted online by Webber and tweeted out.

Employees can be seen grabbing and holding onto Webber until cops arrived and put him in the back of a patrol car, according to the video.

“I’m detaining you. … This is a citizen’s arrest,” a worker tells Webber.

The street artist and filmmaker quips, “What, you’re arresting me ’cause your down with Biden’s war crimes?” He was referring to Hunter’s dad, President Biden.

Webber, who has developed a reputation as an agitator, can be seen and heard taunting an employee wrestling him on the ground while filming during the half-hour incident.

At one point, Webber threw a wad of cash in the air.

“Get off me, buddy! Let go of me! Let go of me! S–thead!” he yells. “You just assaulted me over and over!”

The worker calmly responds, “I can’t. I am waiting for the cops.”

Webber screams multiple times, “Daddy war crimes! War crimes, baby!

“Joe Biden is a war criminal, and you support his son’s work to launder his money,” he rants.

Webber was put in handcuffs and hauled off by cops.

Law enforcement sources said that Webber would be charged with criminal mischief.

The Secret Service was notified and briefed on the incident, the sources said.

A worker who answered the phone at the gallery declined to comment.

Hunter’s mixed-media works are priced at between $75,000 and $500,000, his dealer has said.

The Boston man made headlines in 2019 when he defaced an art installation featuring a duct-taped banana at Art Basel, scrawling “Epstien [stet] didn’t kill himself,” and gobbling up the fruit.

He made news again when he vandalized Jeffrey Epstein’s Florida mansion months later.

During the 2016 presidential campaign, Webber sued the Trump campaign, alleging he’d been shoved by a staffer into a table, according to reports. The campaign settled with Webber in January for $20,000, according to Insider.
