The infamous English graffiti artist Bansky is back again with a new piece dubbed 'My Tap's Been Phoned.'

Bansky's 'My Tap's Been Phoned' piece is a commentary on the News International phone hacking scandal. For those who haven't heard, this is an ongoing controversy that involves employees of the British tabloid who have been accused of tapping into people's calls and police bribery. This piece is Bansky's original interpretation of the whole scandal. It features a cartoon character who hears a phone rings and says "Oh no... my tap's been phoned." The artist has always been known to make social commentary on certain events, so it's no surprise that he's decided to tackle this one. It's good to see Banksy come out with something new and intriguing.
