Controversial billboard rejected in Times Square now in Chicago
New York’s Times Square is known for its eye-catching billboard, but there’s one sign that you won’t see in Times Square, and the reason why, is causing controversy.
The ad by Snore Stop shows a solider and a Muslim woman with the phrase, “be together.”
Snore Stop sells anti-snoring sprays and pills. The company says the idea behind its ads is that its products can keep any couple together.
But media company Clear Channel wasn’t on board with the concept and rejected the sign.
Clear Channel says it turned down the billboard because of its “sensitive nature” and “uncomfortable imagery.”
The billboard is now up in Chicago’s River North neighborhood.
