A conservative street artist known as Sabo plastered the area near Los Angeles's 21st Century Fox studio with transphobic images of Caitlyn Jenner this weekend.
On bus benches and bus shelters, Sabo inserted posters of the upcoming New Line film It -- based on Stephen King's novel about a demonic clown who murders children -- with Jenner's face superimposed over Pennywise the Clown's. Another image shows Jenner's head sticking out of a sewer. Sabo is attempting to criticize Jenner's Monday evening appearance on Fox News, where Tucker Carlson will interview the trans icon.
"Tonight on Tucker Carlson: IT," read the text of the reprehensible posters. "Based on a novel reality."
Sabo -- who's previously defamed female politicians like Hillary Clinton and Wendy Davis -- told The Advocate he's not against the "gay community," but included an inflammatory transphobic statement that repeatedly misgendered Jenner.
"Please know, not that I'd expect you to believe me, but I don't hate or even have any more of a problem with the gay community than I have for any other. I just don't see the need to 'normalize' a behavior that is anything but. Who the hell wants to be normal anyway[?] I thought that was what the mohowk [sic], piercing and blue hair were all about.
"The night before I was going to cancel this creative hit because I felt it was cruel and honestly I felt happy that Mr. [sic] Jenner managed to find peace in his [sic] life. Who am I to question that. But then I remembered my beef with the whole issue was "Progressives" trying to normalize transexualism but making it so these men can use the same restrooms as women. I remembered on some occassions some perverts using this excuse to stalk little girls in the restrooms. Shit, I can't even go to Target anymore because my wife refuses to shop their because of their gender neutral restroom policy. I fucken dig Target!!! How did shopping there become an issue?!"
It's not clear if Fox or L.A.'s transit agency has yet removed the posters.
