Urban Outfitters, who have made a few bucks off the work of street artist Banksy through the years, now allegedly want his "Crayola Shooter" piece, on the wall behind their Westwood store, to be painted over.

A Facebook event page has already popped up summoning folks to protest the rumored removal. Says one poster on the page, the retailer's store management is "claiming [the 'Crayola Shooter' piece is] vandalism and [have filed] paperwork for it to be removed."

Better hurry over there if you want to mug with the colorful gun-toting kid like Jamie Oliver did.
