The outdoor advertising company that put up a controversial billboard sponsored by a group opposing abortion decided to remove it on Thursday because employees in the Mexican restaurant below the sign were harassed by people angered by the billboard’s message, the company said.
“It’s down, or at least it should be coming down soon,” Peter Costanza, the general manager of Lamar Advertising New York, said in a telephone interview on Thursday. “Why did I take it down? Yesterday, somebody came into the restaurant harassing the waiters and waitresses. I don’t want any violence to happen around the buildings there.”
On Friday, Mr. Costanza said the billboard had been removed Thursday night.
The billboard reads "The Most Dangerous Place for An African American Is In the Womb." You can see a picture of it here.
