LOS ANGELES (CBSLA) — Commuters on the 405 Freeway were greeted with a surprise Tuesday morning – large letters spelling out “TRUMP” in the style of the Hollywood Sign.

The letters went up sometime overnight between Monday night and Tuesday morning on a hillside along the northbound 405 Freeway in the Sepulveda Pass. Workers were on the scene to take down the unauthorized installation by 9 a.m., but not before a few commuters saw it as they zoomed by on the freeway.

Shawn Hugus tweeted at about 8:35 a.m. that the sign was just past Sunset Boulevard, but he didn’t take a picture because he didn’t want to get into an accident.

“The good news is that someone was climbing toward it, so I hope they’re pulling it down or covering it with red paint or blood, because he got like 200,000 people killed,” he said in a second tweet.

Los Angeles is famously liberal, but this is not the first time conservative street art has popped up and caused outrage. A conservative street artist known as Sabo last year altered billboards for the Quentin Tarantino film “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood” so it would read “Once Upon A Time in Pedowood,” and put up posters that said “The Oscars Have No Hart” after comedian Kevin Hart stepped down from hosting the annual awards show after old, anti-gay tweets surfaced.

It’s not clear at this time, however, who was responsible for this incident.

    No Shawn Hugus, China is responsible for every single death from COVID-19 you traitor!

      Shawn Hugus is so creepy! Typical left.

    2. agree! Why do these leftist morons think the president is responsible for a virus China started? And sent here! He closed the border as soon as he knew it was here and spreading. And then the left gets mad that he closes the border! They’re insane.

    3. I want the sign back up! Best sign we have ever had.

    They took the sign down, but homelessness is able to run rampant. Put it back up! #TRUMP2020 #MAGA #WomenForTrump

    Sign removed due to massive triggering, like Shawn Hugnuts

  4. S Chavez says:

    A single 5 letter word is hazardous to drivers but all the billboards along the freeways of LA County aren’t. That’s consistent.

  5. Nabi Rasch says:

    So they CAN be efficient! Who’d’a thought!

  6. Dave says:

    If they take down the Trump sign they should take down the Hollywood sign.

    “Workers were on the scene to take down the unauthorized installation by 9 a.m…” Something tells me that if the “unauthorized installation” had read “BLM” it would quickly have been authorized. LOL! But it was there for long enough to give commuters a smile.

    I refuse to be intimidated by these jerks. I’ve got a Trump sign in my yard for every passerby to read. I also have a Trump facemask. not one negative comment. Just the opposite. I’ve had all positive comments about it. I wear a Trump hat, and I pass out collectible Trump coins. Oh, and I tell all I know to vote Trump. So, Sean Hugus, VOTE TRUMP PRNCE 2020 and PENCE 2024, Donald Trump JR. 2028, Eric Trump 2036, Barron Trump 2042, Lara Trump 2050
