TILDA SWINTON ARRESTED FOR VAGRANCY
NEW YORK – Actress and beloved British odd ball Tilda Swinton was arrested on Sunday Evening at the MoMa in New York on a charge of vagrancy.
The Michael Clayton Oscar winner had been sleeping in an empty exhibit case on and off for weeks, despite the fact that museum spokeswoman Margaret Dufflecoat had told Ms. Swinton on more than one occasion to ‘Piss off!’
Officer Barnes of the NYPD said that, ‘A Caucasian 50 year old woman Oscar winner was arrested on Sunday afternoon when she refused to vacate the MoMa premises, claiming she was part of an installation called The Maybe. I advised the female of her rights and escorted her from the building.’
George Clooney – co-star and good friend of the Oscar winner – said:
Winning an Oscar is meaningless, it’s not that important. And Tilda – although she did win an Oscar – hasn’t been doing too well of late. I think the least the MoMa could do is go with her story that this is some sort of nut-job art thing. Like Marina Abramovich, or something. And that way Tilda will keep some of her dignity.
We have just found out that that is exactly what the MoMa is opting to do.
