Sotheby’s International Realty is the latest victim of election debauchery, alongside a handful of celebrities.

A series of fake Sotheby’s ads appeared on bus benches in Beverly Hills, Pacific Palisades and Brentwood Sunday, masquerading Trump as a realtor, according to the Hollywood Reporter.

To the right of Trump on each ad, liberal celebrities are pictured with a caption that suggests they are selling their homes in order to move out of the country following a Trump victory.

The ad that features Samuel L. Jackson, for instance, says, “Moving to South Africa Election Day Sale” and “For more information contact Sotheby’s agent Donald Trump.”

The brainchild of conservative street artist Sabo, the ads also feature celebrities such as Cher, Lena Dunham, Amy Schumer, Bryan Cranston and Jon Stewart.

“I swear to God, you give these people a platform and they bash you over the head with it every time,” Sabo told the Reporter.

“Half of Hollywood is moving to Canada if Trump is elected. Not much of a threat when you consider so much of the movie industry has already made their exodus in that direction due to the socialistic mess they’ve made of California.”

The ads also contain a website, GTFOOH.today, which Sabo said stands for, “Get the f**k out of here today.” [THR]Cathaleen Chen
