Anti-Kardashians signs that read "No Kardashian Parking Anytime" have been installed in several areas of Hollywood. The idea came from a LA street artist who goes by the name Plastic Jesus.

The seven official-looking signs were attached onto street poles featuring official parking signs. They were posted in some areas throughout Hollywood including near The Ivy restaurant, outside the Urban Outfitters on Melrose and outside Cecconi's West Hollywood eating house, also on Melrose.

There is also one sign installed outside the Kardashians' Dash boutique owned by Kim and her sisters Khloe and Kourtney. Known to many as the Banksy of L.A., the artist told The Hollywood Reporter that the signs are a statement on America's obsession with celebrity.

"I suppose it's a protest at the obsession with the Kardashians and every kind of move they make," the artist said. "Their lunch outings and shopping trips are media events in themselves. What can be fascinating about someone pumping gas?" Later he added, "People are shutting out real news content."

The UK-bred artist said that the idea came after seeing paparazzi surrounding one of the Kardashian sisters on an LA street. "I guarantee that same number of paparazzi was far greater than any number of photographers chasing real news," he gushed.

He further complained, "The Kardashian family has become ingrained in our culture. We've allowed mainstream media to become so profit-driven, we are sacrificing genuine news stories to satiate our vapid celebrity obsessions." Prior to the sign, the artist was also responsible for another stunt. Last year, he installed an oversize, heroin-injecting Oscar-like statue near the site of the 2014 Academy Awards as his response to Hollywood's drug problems.
