A street artist has painted a mural that Alan Jones criticizes for saying that Jacinda Arden should have pushed sock down her throat.
The towering artwork, painted on an alley wall in Chippendale in the south of Sydney, shows the radio shock jock with a gag over his mouth.
Jones experienced a lot of recoil because of comments about the New Zealand prime minister earlier in August in which he said that Scott Morrison & # 39; had to push a sock down her throat & # 39; for reading Australia about climate change.
The artist, Scott Marsh, posted a video on his Instagram account of someone who threw a pair of rolled up socks at the mural.

Jones & # 39; comments were made in reference to Jacinda Ardern that Australia this month & # 39; must respond to the Pacific & climate change at a Pacific Islands Forum in Tuvalu.
Scott Morrison, also in Tuvalu for the forum, responded by saying that he & # 39; was out of step & # 39; about the comment.
& # 39; The comment was passed on to me; I am very disappointed about what has been reported to me and of course that is not true at all, & Morrison told the media.
& # 39; I have two daughters, so you can expect that I would find it so personal. I let others explain what they said and how they said it. & # 39;

Jones fell back with his remarks and said he meant it as a speech and that people intentionally misrepresented him & # 39; had interpreted.
Former Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull also weighed on the controversy and called the comments & # 39; misogynistic & # 39 ;.
Marsh has built a reputation as a prominent street artist with a number of his works receiving international attention.
His other works include caricatures of Israel Folau and Tony Abbott, and a drawing of the coffin that was used to keep a messenger free in Sydney this month.
One went mostly viral – a huge image of the & # 39; Kanye kissing Kanye & # 39; meme, also painted on a wall in Chippendale.

According to the ABC a member of West & # 39; s area contacted Marsh shortly after it was painted and offered him money to paint over the wall.
He responded by offering a large print of the painted artwork with a price tag of $ 100,000 – and a promise that he would paint over the wall if it was purchased.
The print has been purchased and the wall has been repainted, although it is not known whether a member of Kanye & # 39; s entourage was the buyer or whether the huge asking price was reached.
