Jimmy Kimmel Trolled By Conservative Artist Over Car Accident
Jimmy Kimmel got trolled by conservative street artist Sabo Tuesday with a phony street sign that mocked his car wreck, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
The artist hung the sign in the same location where Kimmel got in a car wreck after he allegedly made an illegal left turn on Sunset Trip in West Hollywood, California. At the corner hangs a stop sign and underneath that is a second sign that reads, “Right Turn Only.”
Sabo then added a third sign underneath that read, “This Includes Idiot Comedians.”
He then shared a shot of the realistic looking sign on his Twitter account.

Sabo told The Hollywood Reporter he was targeting Kimmel for comments he made a week ago about how late-night show hosts all had to be liberal because it required a “measure of intelligence.”
“Pretty much every late-night talk show (host) is a liberal,” Kimmel shared on a podcast. “And that’s because it requires a measure of intelligence.”
“Obviously, his intellect wasn’t so sharp as to keep him from nearly killing someone,” Sabo explained.
According to to the report, Kimmel’s BMW was hit on the strip after he made a left turn in front of the famed Chateau Marmont Hotel.
No one was injured in the crash.
It was not the first time Sabo has taken a swipe at Kimmel. In posters that appeared in October, 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.” The posters appeared on bus-stop benches in West Hollywood near Kimmel’s home.
At the time, Sabo explained that the artwork was in response to Kimmel repeatedly using his monologue to push Democratic views on Obamacare and gun control.

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.
