Sabo has posted faux ads attacking Hollywood on other occasions, but he said he considers the hijacking of three giant billboards on a single day his largest mission yet. The last time he took over a billboard was in November when he altered a sign for The Greatest Showman to make it appear like Sen. Al Franken was grabbing at Zendaya, who starred as a trapeze artist in the movie.
Franken has since resigned from the senate under allegations that he sexually harassed women, and nearly 100 other men in the entertainment industry also have been publicly accused of sexual misconduct since claims were made against Harvey Weinstein nearly five months ago.
Sabo says his signage is meant to criticize those who allegedly enabled sexual harassment with their silence, and to tell celebrities they should refrain from preaching during their Oscar acceptance speeches — for this one year, at least.
The trolly street artist has taken Hollywood to the woodshed since the #MeToo movement broke out, including a publicized personal attack on actress Meryl Streep claiming “#SheKnew” about the alleged sexual predations of Harvey Weinstein and did nothing:
Sabo has also gone after Jimmy Kimmel in recent months for spewing partisan political talking points without actualy understanding the policy issues, and crying during his show instead of being the once funny late-night and former ‘Man Show’ host.
