Los Angeles artist Sabo called out the entertainment industry’s hypocrisy Saturday with a set of “We All Knew” posters featuring nude shots of Lady Gaga and Miley Cyrus ahead of the Grammys, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
The conservative artist used NSFW previously published photos of the two singers and included details about Sunday night’s 60th Annual Grammy Awards with the hashtag #WeAllKnew.
PLEASE CLICK THE HELL OUT OF THIS … THANKS https://t.co/uFp4Qulhr7

The hashtag was in reference to the flood of sexual misconduct allegations that has rocked Hollywood, music, and the media industries, shedding light on those who allegedly knew and did nothing.
The posters turned up early in the morning Saturday in hard to reach places throughout Hollywood, including behind locked glass cases that looked very much like real advertisements.
“IRONY 101: NEWS OUTLETS REFUSE TO RUN WITH THESE IMAGES BECAUSE THEY ARE DEEMED TO BE “TASTELESS” … THEY FAILED TO SEE THAT THAT IS THE POINT! … THE GRAMMY’S ARE MISOGYNISTIC AND HAVE BECOME TASTELESS! THE NETWORKS ON THE OTHER HAND WILL CONTINUE TO AIR THIS BEHAVIOR,” Sabo tweeted Saturday.
Earlier this month, posters featuring Harvey Weinstein and Seth Myers with the words “We All Knew” appeared in Hollywood ahead of the Golden Globes. The artist talked about the posters and why he did it in a Vice interview.
“This is awards season,” Sabo told them. “There’s no reason for me not to hit the Oscars and the Grammys and all those other fucking award shows. It’s basically them just patting themselves on the back.”
