Conservative artist Sabo created fake movie posters to mock Hollywood and the Oscars ahead of Sunday’s show to send a message to celebrities who keep attacking President Donald Trump.

Rhe Los Angeles based street artist plastered the movie posters and “fake Redbox kiosks” Thursday night he created in “hard to reach places” near where celebrities will be walking the red carpet at the 89th Academy Awards show, according to the Hollywood Reporter. (RELATED: Spicer: President Trump Will Not Watch The Academy Awards This Year)

“All those assholes make are unwatchable movies from unreadable books,” one of the posters read that the artist tweeted.

 

 

 

“Yeah, we wouldn’t have paid full price to watch any Oscar nominated movies either,” one of the sayings on the fake RedBox kiosks read.

“These pieces look so legit no one is thinking to take them down,” Sabo said. “It almost looks like a real Redbox ad. I consider this piece my representation of the discounting of Hollywood.”

“I hardly ever go to movies anymore and it there’s ever a movie I really want to see I’ll just wait for it to show up in ReBox,”Sabo wrote in a post on Facebook. “I’ll admit the reasons I do this are a bit petty. It’s my own little way to rebel by putting as little money possible into the big liberal Hollywood machine. Out of touch actors who rail against my political beliefs drove me to it.”
