LOS ANGELES, California — Several posters depicting actress Gwyneth Paltrow as an “Obama Drone” have surfaced near the Brentwood home of the Iron Man 3 and Shakespeare in Love actress.
Paltrow is hosting President Barack Obama at her home for a dinner-fundraiser on Thursday night where tickets have been sold for a price tag in excess of $32,000 a person.
One poster appeared in front of an elementary school and has a drone with “Hollywood” written on it in the background, featuring a smugly smiling Paltrow furnishing an Obama “hope” logo on her right lapel; the “hope” logo has been emblematic of Obama’s 2008 presidential campaign.
Paltrow is sandwiched in between the words “OBAMA DRONE.” What appears to be a hand-written addition to the poster in black Sharpie ink has the words “kill ISIS” strategically placed on Paltrow’s throat and chest. And surrounding the perimeter of her shoulders is an invitation to “party @ Paltrow’s 4 a deadly African virus” in reference to the lethal Ebola virus.
Similar posters have surfaced throughout the United States and greater Los Angeles area.
In March of this year, street art featuring Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) appeared in Beverly Hills. And in June, “Hanoi Jane” posters surfaced throughout Westwood ahead of actress Jane Fonda’s commencement speech at UCLA’s school of Theater, Film and Television.
