look up any word, like sweetest day:
The act of commissioning a work and then muzzling the message when it differs from expectations.
In a blatant act of spensorship, this weekend's performance at the Brooklyn Museum of SSA's (Seriously Angry Artists) "The Brooklyn Museum Must be Destroyed This Weekend, and Everyone in it Must be Obliterated in a Fiery Inferno" has been cancelled, after major funding was withdrawn by the Brooklyn Museum.
