Jimmy Kimmel Reponds to Street Artist Calling Him a 'Crybaby'.
It was after the show that Sabo created posters of the host, looking like a young Johnny Depp from the 1990 movie, "Cry-Baby." The poster read, "Jimmy Kimmel is a Cry-Baby," with an image of Kimmel, hair slicked back and dressed in a leather jacket.
Although, initially Kimmel refused to comment on the matter, later he emailed a picture to (http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/news/jimmy-kimmel-responds-street-artist-art-his-own-1046173) The Hollywood Reporter of himself, sitting on a bench plastered with one of Sabo's posters. He also added a quote saying, "I encourage all fellow crybabies to support Everytown for Gun Safety - everytown.org."
He also tweeted out Friday and advised everyone, who was mocking him, to make donations instead of directing their anger onto him.
But even that didn't stop Sabo from taking another jab at the host as he tweeted the picture of Kimmel and took a jab at him, saying, "JIMMY KIMMEL, IT'S NOT ME WHO QUESTIONS YOUR MASCULINITY, IT'S THE WAY YOU CROSS YOUR LEGS."
"We allow Jimmy Kimmel into our homes because at one point we considered him to be entertaining. Now he's nothing more than a talking head for the Democrat party," Sabo told (http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/news/jimmy-kimmel-targeted-by-conservative-street-artist-1045951) The Hollywood Reporter.
Sabo created about a dozen such posters near Kimmel's home in Hollywood, as well as neart the Chateau Marmont Hotel, and the Jimmy Kimmel Live! studio on Hollywood Boulevard. One poster had Kimmel wiping a tear from his face while advertising a faux show, "The Jimmy Kimmel Estrogen Hour," which Sabo created as an homage to the days when Kimmel co-hosted "The Man Show" with Adam Carolla.
This is not the first time the conservative artist has taken a jab at celebrities. His website, (http://unsavoryagents.com/) UnsavoryAgents.com includes degrading images of Cher, Leonardo DiCaprio, Jon Stewart, Gwyneth Paltrow, among others, chastising stars with his street art.
Here's the poster that he made mocking Kimmel after the ABC host talked about the menace of gun violence following the Las Vegas mass shooting on Oct. 1.
In his monologue, he challenged President Trump and urged Congress to act against the menace as he called out politicians and the National Rifle Association of being too scared to take any action against it.
"President Trump is visiting Las Vegas on Wednesday. He spoke this morning, he said he was praying for those who lost their lives. You know, in February, he also signed a bill that made it easier for people with severe mental illness to buy guns legally. The Senate majority leader, Mitch McConnell, the speaker of the House, Paul Ryan, a number of other lawmakers who won't do anything about this because the N.R.A. has their b---s in a money clip, also sent their thoughts and their prayers today - which is good. They should be praying. They should be praying for God to forgive them for letting the gun lobby run this country. Because it is, it is so crazy," he said.
He also showed pictures of the senators who voted against new gun restrictions days after the Orlando shooting that took place last year.
