Street Artist Skewers #MeToo with Hollywood Billboards: ‘Oscar for Biggest Pedophile Goes to …’

Street artist known as Sabo is trolling celebrities ahead of Sunday’s Academy Awards, erecting three billboards that send searing messages to a town whose most powerful men have been accused of decades of sexual abuse.

Photos of the three billboards, which are a play on the Oscar-nominated drama Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri, emerged online on Wednesday, just days before hundreds of stars show up to celebrate themselves on Hollywood’s biggest night.

“And the Oscar for biggest pedophile goes to…” reads one of the near-fifty-foot signs.

“We all knew and still no arrests,” another billboard reads.

“Name names on stage or shut the hell up!” another says, sending a message to the many celebrities expected to urge support for the #MeToo and Time’s Up anti-sexual harassment movements on the red carpet and from the stage.

Sabo says, according to the Hollywood Reporter, that his billboards are “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 street artist is no stranger to controversy. Sabo saturated the streets of Los Angeles in January with art showing Golden Globes host and late-night star Seth Myers with the caption “We All New” and a fake “Stop” sign urging stars to stop “Pedophiles,” “Perverts,” and “Rapists.”

Photos posted on social media show the art, which consists of several pieces including a mock poster featuring this year’s Globes host, late-night host Seth Meyers, as well as a fake “Stop” sign that urges a stop to “Pedophiles,” “Perverts,” and “Rapists.”

Sabo has lampooned celebrities, CEOs, and politicians from Harvey Weinstein to Oscar-winner Leonardo DiCaprio to Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg to former Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton to disgraced Sen. Al Franken.

ABC late-night funnyman Jimmy Kimmel — who has recently been mocked by Sabo — is set to return to host the 90th Academy Awards and says he doesn’t want to “ruin” Sunday’s show by cracking jokes about Hollywood’s widespread sexual misconduct scandal.


Actress Meryl Streep: ‘Donald Trump Is An Evil Person, And We Have To Make Him…’

While getting an award at the Golden Globes, Meryl Streep chose to take a stand in opposition to Donald Trump.

Without saying the President of the United States by name, Streep talked about being beaten down in the wake of watching him mock a disabled columnist.

Mr Trump utilized his Twitter account to react, calling Streep “overrated”  in spite of having called her “excellent” and “a fine individual” in 2015.

Streep chose to call out Mr Trump one more time, this time at the Human Rights Campaign’s 2017 Greater New York Gala Dinner, and she began:

“‘Evil prospers when good men do nothing’… ain’t that the truth, anyways we have to make this evil dissappear.” Streep stated, as indicated by Entertainment Weekly.

“We shouldn’t be surprised that fundamentalists, of all stripes, everywhere, are exercised and fuming. We shouldn’t be surprised that these profound changes come at a much steeper cost than it seems would lie true in the 20th century. We shouldn’t be surprised if not everyone is totally down with it.”

“But if we live through this precarious moment… if his catastrophic instinct to retaliate doesn’t lead us to nuclear winter, we will have much to thank this President for because he will have woken us up to how fragile freedom really is,” she added.

“The whip of the Executive can, through a Twitter feed, lash and intimidate, punish and humiliate, delegitimise the press and imagined enemies with spasmodic regularity and easily provoked predictability,”she concluded.

She at that point tended to his “overrated” remarks with a joke, saying: “Yes, I am the most overrated, over-decorated, and currently, over-berated actress of my generation. But that is why you invited me here! Right?”

Steep showed up at the Gala to get the Ally for Equality Award, which is given to the individuals who voice help for the LGBTQ people group.

In the interim, the performer has been named for a Best Actress Oscar, her nineteenth selection. Accordingly, Streep answered to the Academy with a cheerful gif. Check out the video below:
