The Street artist that goes by the name of “Sabo” mocked ABC talk show host Jimmy Kimmel as a “cry baby” and more in artwork that showed up on the streets of Los Angeles.

In the posters that appeared Thursday morning, Kimmel looks similar to Johnny Depp’s character in the 1990 movie “Cry Baby” as he is featured wearing a black leather jacket with his hair greased back with the words, “Jimmy Kimmel is a Cry-Baby” above his picture.

The posters were placed near Kimmel’s home in West Hollywood in difficult-to-reach places and appeared near “The Jimmy Kimmel Live” studio on Hollywood Boulevard.

A shot of the poster was shared earlier in the day on Sabo’s Twitter account.


“We allow Jimmy Kimmel into our homes because at one point we considered him to be entertaining,” Sabo said. “Now he’s nothing more than a talking head for the Democrat party.”

Another poster features a picture of the talk show host crying with the words written above him that read, “The Jimmy Kimmel Estrogen Hour.”

Later in the day, the talk show host appeared in a picture posted on Twitter flipping the bird to Sabo as he sat next to one of the pieces of artwork.

Lately, Kimmel has used his monologue on his talk show to push Democratic views on repealing Obamacare and to push gun control after the Las Vegas massacre.

Update: This story has been updated to include Kimmel’s response.
