A billboard promoting Quentin Tarantino's latest film "Once Upon a Time in Hollywood" was vandalized on the day of the film's release early Friday morning in Los Angeles.
The billboard promoting the movie starring Brad Pitt, Leonardo DiCaprio and Margot Robbie, was altered by vandals to replace the faces of Pitt with accused pedophile Jeffrey Epstein and DiCaprio's face with disgraced director Roman Polanski.
The vandals also re-titled the movie as "Once Upon a Time in Pedowood" in an apparent reference to Epstien's alleged crimes involving underage girls. Epstein faces up to 45 years in jail for allegedly sex-trafficking girls as young as 14. A federal indictment says Epstein "sexually exploited and abused dozens of minor girls at his homes" located in Manhattan and Palm Beach, Florida. Some of Epstein's victims were paid to recruit other underage girls, the indictment adds.
Polanski, who directed films like "Chinatown" and "The Pianist" fled from justice more than 40 years ago after he was accused of drugging and raping a 13-year-old girl.
The billboard is located on Pico Boulevard just east of La Cienega.
