CHICAGO -- A billboard for Donald Trump in West Town was taken down after it was defaced several times.

The sign at Lake and Ogden originally read “VOTE TRUMP” until someone crossed out Trump's name and spray painted "VOTE 4 BERNIE" over it.

Someone went further and spray painted profanity in large red letters.

The sign was paid for by a Trump supporter. No word yet on if it will be replaced.

The billboard gained a bit of attention after a photo of it was shared by comedian El Chuyito on Facebook:

That post was shared over 2,000 times.

Trump is scheduled to hold a rally at the UIC Pavilion this Friday where protesters plan to greet him.
