Pro-Trump Artist Targets 'Rogue One' Premiere
The Force is With Him
(Hollywood Reporter) - "I'd never seen the mainstream media sell their souls for a candidate the way they did for Hillary, and she still lost," says Sabo, who plastered faux movie posters all over Hollywood Boulevard.
When Disney hosts its star-studded Rogue One: A Star Wars Story premiere on Saturday, guests will be greeted by artwork meant to rub it in the faces of liberal Hollywood that Donald Trump beat Hillary Clinton in the Nov. 8 presidential election.
The artwork, posted at bus stops and other locations near the Pantages Theatre in Hollywood, consists of parodies of the poster for the latest Star Wars film, as well as for the Fox comedy Why Him? starring Bryan Cranston, James Franco and Zoey Deutch.
The faux Star Wars poster features a heroic-looking image of Trump with an ominous image of Clinton lurking in the background. Huddled around Trump are his senior counselor Steve Bannon, pundit Ann Coulter, Breitbart News tech editor Milo Yiannopoulos, Fox News host Sean Hannity, Wikileaks founder Julian Assange and Vice Media co-founder Gavin McInnes, an early Trump supporter.
At the bottom of the poster, the title of the film has been altered to read, "Rogue Won: A Culture War Story."
The posters were created by conservative street artist, Sabo, who has previously attacked Leonardo DiCaprio, Nate Parker, Lena Dunham, Cher and other celebrities in his artwork. His typical method of operation is to plaster his creations all over a designated area before the sun rises, and the posters usually remain for several hours before authorities — or offended liberals — remove them.
