Conservative street artist Sabo has altered the image of a billboard advertising the new Quentin Tarantino movie, “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood,” by swapping the images of the film’s stars, Brad Pitt and Leonardo DiCaprio, with the faces of Jeffrey Epstein and Roman Polanski.

Targeting a billboard at Pico and La Cienega, Sabo also changed the title of the movie to “Once Upon a Time in Pedowood,” in reference to Epstein, a financier, having being convicted of sex offenses against minors and Polanski, a film director, being found guilty of statutory rape. 

The Hollywood Reporter said that several ads for the film, which opened on Thursday night, were discovered on Friday morning to have been altered by the artist, who often targets Hollywood and liberals in his work. 

One of the targeted ads uses an image of Woody Allen, who is accused of abusing his adoptive daughter, instead of Pitt’s face.

Of the people he has placed in the faux ads, Sabo said, as reported by the Hollywood Reporter, “I felt they should all share a billboard to highlight a decades-old problem that has plagued Hollywood for decades: the abuse of children,”
