In Malibu, California, a conservatively-based prank occurred throughout the city on Tuesday.
Professional-looking signs were placed near the city limits with the words “OFFICIAL SANCTUARY CITY” written on them.
Underneath the stand-out signs were the underlying captions: “Cheap nannies and gardeners make Malibu great! (Boyle Heights not so much),” and “Because our beach community needs cheap labor, dude.”
Boyle Heights is a predominately Latino neighborhood in Los Angeles. The signs were likely intended to criticize Malibu’s decision to become a sanctuary city earlier in March.
The Malibu prank didn’t last long, as city council members ordered officials to take the signs down Wednesday morning.
While no one has officially taken credit, a street artist named Sabo claims his friends from Hollywood were responsible, according to The Hollywood Reporter:
“Some friends of mine put those up last night. They aren’t big on getting attention, seeing they work in the Hollywood industry and, well, all know there is a serious Black List in full effect focused on those of us who aren’t on the Left, politically speaking.”
Actor Martin Sheen, who is a resident of Malibu, along with the likes of Leonardo DiCaprio, Jack Nicholson, and Ellen DeGeneres, pushed for the town to become a sanctuary city for illegal aliens and refugees.
