The guy behind those Meryl Streep “She Knew” posters has come forward, and he has a message for Hollywood.
The controversial street artist known as Sabo, who is known for skewering liberals in his art, is behind the posters that have sprung up at various locations in Los Angeles. He calls them payback for Streep speaking out against President Trump.
Sabo made a name for himself during last year’s presidential election by putting up hard-hitting posters blasting Hillary Clinton.
Last month, he targeted Democratic Minnesota Sen. Al Franken with a giant billboard in LA that mocked the former Saturday Night Live comedian reaching for an actress on an ad for the forthcoming Hugh Jackman film, The Greatest Showman.
Sabo goes out in the dead of night and pastes his posters on public utility boxes and in other strategic locations.
He put the Streep posters up near her home in Pasadena and near the headquarters of the Screen Actors Guild.
He said he singled out Streep, telling Inside Edition: “She's a very powerful person in Hollywood and people like that, their feet need to be held to the fire.”
Sabo believes Streep knew about Harvey Weinstein’s alleged sexual misbehavior around women over the years, but he doesn’t have any concrete proof.
“It is not a huge leap for me, especially if you consider a vast majority of Hollywood knew it as a dirty secret with Harvey Weinstein,” he told Inside Edition.
Streep has continued to deny knowing about the misconduct Weinstein is accused of.
