The conservative California street artist known as Sabo on Tuesday hung a fake street sign mocking Jimmy Kimmel where the late-night comedian reportedly crashed his BMW while trying to make an illegal left turn in West Hollywood.
TMZ reported Feb. 1 that Mr. Kimmel crashed his car into an Audi in front of the Chateau Marmont Hotel after he ignored a “Right Turn Only” sign and tried to make a left onto Sunset Boulevard.
On Tuesday, a sign reading, “This Includes Idiot Comedians” was positioned directly underneath the “Right Turn Only” sign.
Sabo told The Hollywood Reporter that he created the sign after Mr. Kimmel told a crowd at the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles on Feb. 3 that the majority of late-night talk shows hosts are liberal because the job requires “a measure of intelligence.”
“Obviously, his intellect wasn’t so sharp as to keep him from nearly killing someone,” Sabo said.
This is the second time Sabo has targeted Mr. Kimmel with his street art, THR reported. In October, he posted “Jimmy Kimmel is a Cry-Baby” posters on several bus-stop benches. Mr. Kimmel responded by posing for a picture sitting on one of the benches while flipping the bird, THR reported.
