Talk about bad taste!
The holidays are supposed to be about giving, sharing, and acceptance — but it seems that one sign maker didn’t quite get the memo!
Cranium Signage in New Zealand recently created and posted a billboard that featured a photo of Caitlyn Jenner along with a message that the transgender community found VERY offensive and transphobic in the first degree.
The original billboard read:
This is OBVIOUSLY an EXTREMELY disgusting message, and we can’t believe anyone would see it otherwise.
Thankfully, several other people took to social media to blast Cranium on their Facebook page. The director of the company, Phillip Garratt, has already issued apologies, promised to take the billboard down, and donated money to a charity.
Garratt wrote in a Facebook post:
Before they took the ad down, the company censored the billboard and made the following post:
Most recently Phillip wrote:
The director of the company has also assured a few people who had reached out to him via email that “it will be removed tomorrow.”
We hope it’s been taken down by now, and we’re glad to see Cranium Signage make up for their mistakes!
Were you offended by the billboard?
