Sunset Boulevard in Hollywood was shut down Tuesday evening after a man climbed a television tower, perched on a digital billboard and played a guitar for several hours, according to KTLA.
The man, who was not immediately identified, climbed the 162-foot KTLA TV station tower and held a sign that read “Free Billie Eilish.” The back of the man’s sign read “MK ultra sex slaves donald marshall clones,” according to Billboard. It’s unclear what the message refers to.

It was not the first time someone climbed the tower. A similar incident occurred in 2016, according to KABC.
