LAPD NABS SIX FOR CHANGING HOLLYWOOD SIGN TO HOLLYBOOB IN EPIC MARKETING “PROTEST” GAG
So this is one of those times I’m happy to be writing about news illuminating the perfection of adolescent stupidity. Sure, we had Trump for 4 years and that was… a lot. But something seemed missing with all that racist, misogynistic brutal time. And that was the perfection that is news about people doing totally stupid things. This totally qualifies. Now, while I must admit that when I was 15, this would have been brilliant to me. But, I must say, I would have planned it out not to get caught. I mean, really. And for 6 now in LAPD custody, they have some serious time to rethink making the Hollywood sign into Hollyboob.
LAPD DOESN’T HAVE TO WORK HARD TO CATCH SHAG MAG FOUNDER FOR DEFACING HOLLYWOOD SIGN
So yes, this is mostly (or at least likely) the exclusive demesne of the adolescent male. And when I was 15, that still totally made sense. But getting caught? Sigh. That’s just even more stupid than doing it in the first place. But no, the Hollyboob ringleader was a woman! Her name is Julia Rose and she’s a social media influencer. Her goal? Protesting Instagram censorship. Yes, really. Because, boobs. She has them, and likes to use them for, um, exposure. And yes, Instagram found her, um, boobs, to violate their policies on nudity. I’m of two minds on that. My inner 15-year-old totally agrees. Because, well, boobs.
HOLLYBOOB GAG DOESN’T REALY HAVE ANYTHING TO DO WITH INSTAGRAM CENSORSHIP
So Julia Rose didn’t like the cock block, I mean the boob block, by Instagram. She’s the founder and CEO of the digital publication Shag Mag, which is what you would expect. And, to be fair, if you want to get your Shag Mag out there, this is one way to do it. I had never heard of it, despite my inner adolescent tendencies. And, to be fair, Hollyboob is pretty funny. But the terrain around the sign is a little dangerous. Fortunately, no boobs suffered injury in the making of this malarkey.
