Right-wing street artist “Sabo” struck again and he targeted late-night talk show host Jimmy Kimmel and his emotional tirades in service to left-wing causes. And Kimmel decided to send him a message about his art.

What did Sabo do to mock Kimmel?

Sabo designed images ridiculing the late night host and posted them around Los Angeles. In a video he posted on his Twitter account, he said he posted one of his designs where he knew Kimmel would see them.

Why did he do this?

Kimmel has been using his media platform to advocate for Obamacare, and for gun control after the deadly mass shooting in Las Vegas where nearly 60 were killed and hundreds were injured.

Sabo is a right-wing artist who has used his graphic design talents to mock the left in Hollywood.

Here are the images he posted:

How did Kimmel respond?

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Kimmel found one of the designs and snapped a picture of himself sitting on the bench and flipping a middle finger to the artist.

What did Sabo say was the point of his mockery?

In a tweet on his account, the artist explained, “USING ART AND SATIRE, I SUCCESSFULLY DENIED JIMMY KIMMEL THE USE OF HIS ALLIGATOR TEARS TO HELP PUSH DEMOCRAT POLICIES ON LATE NIGHT TV.”
