Thomas Kinkade, You’re Going Down

Posted by on March 27 at 0:01 AM

The devoutly Christian “Painter of Light” has been called out for his artistic felonies for a long time, but now, according to a great story in the Guardian, he is also being outed as a man who swindles his own dealers, fondles women’s breasts at will, and gets drunk and does things like urinate in a public elevator and on a model of Winnie the Pooh at Disneyland. He also disrupted a performance of Siegfried and Roy by repeatedly yelling “Codpiece!”

he also spams my physical mailbox with ads for a hummingbird with some shitty painting on his wing. wtf. bastard needs a one way ticket to hell.

i hate hate hate hate his shit.

Behind the curve much? Most of these revelations were comedy fodder on "Wait, Wait, Don't Tell Me!" weekend before last.

Thank you, Jesus, for sending us these followers of yours.

I believe this was posted in the NY Times before it hit the Guardian.

What's that? An (alleged) artist is a crappy businessman, drunk and womanizer? I'm shocked, I tell you. SHOCKED.

I've always hated those paintings, but after reading about how he urinated on that model of Winnie the Pooh at a Disneyland hotel while saying "This one's for you, Walt," I decided I kinda like the guy.

I mean c'mon, who hasn't wanted to do that?

He truly is a painter of light, a painter of golden, cascading light.
