Why he might be annoying
He designed a Star Wars-inspired fashion line, including a 'Fett for Real' sweatshirt and the 'Ultimate Vader' hoodie.
He released a hoax video depicting himself breaking into a hangar and painting graffiti on Air Force One (2006).
Chicago Sun-Times columnist Michael Sneed called him a copycat, noting that Grant De Porter had purchased the infamous Steve Bartman baseball and let fans vote on its fate in 2004.
Bonds said he was 'stupid' and an 'idiot.'
Why he might not be annoying
The San Diego zoo named a baby rhino after him to honor his work with the International Rhino Foundation.
He provided legal assistance to overturn a New York City anti-graffiti law that banned minors from possessing spray paint or broad-tipped markers.
He offered to design a custom t-shirt for Bonds: 'Marc Ecko paid $752,467 for my ball and all I got was this stupid t-shirt.'
Commenting on the vote, he said, 'I thought it would be interesting for us all to have a pop culture moment together.'
