while i really enjoy living in los angeles, i definitely do not appreciate nonsense such as this.

do you guys feel this type of stuff happens more frequently here than in other major cities?

Publicity stunt triggers massive traffic jam in downtown L.A. as rap artist scales traffic sign

A shirtless man wearing boxer shorts shut down the southbound lanes of the 110 Freeway in downtown Los Angeles for two hours Wednesday morning after he scaled an exit sign, unfurled political banners and began vaping, dancing and shouting from a bullhorn.

The spectacle — an apparent publicity stunt executed by an aspiring rap artist — created a massive traffic jam that paralyzed much of downtown as police officers and firefighters scaled the sign in an attempt to remove the man.

The episode finally ended when the husky sign climber performed a back flip off the structure and landed on a massive inflatable cushion placed on the freeway by firefighters.

Just one more person who thinks that he is more important than anyone else and so he doesn't care at all if he inconveniences thousands of other people.

(He also seems to believe that rapping and saving the environment are equally important. Yeah, he's an anus in human form, all right.)

I saw some goon in Hollywood climb a crane a few months back. The Police ended up closing off several blocks of traffic not to mention wasted manpower
