Just how far will people go for publicity especially in the entertainment capital of the world? Aspiring rapper and goofball Dephree is now known to the world after holding up downtown Los Angeles traffic for two hours after climbing up on an exit sign, vaping, dancing, shouting into a bullhorn and putting up banners, according to the LA Times. Not to mention he was just in boxers.

I was SUPER late to work today because of you! Not fun, but I’ll forgive you, because of the back flip ending.— Izzy (@Izzy66171755) June 28, 2018
Police and firefighters rushed to the scene and finally got a hold of him after Dephree did a backflip off the freeway sign and into an inflatable cushion.
