Burka Billboard Sparks Controversy
« on: November 04, 2013, 09:10:48 AM »

LOS ANGELES ( —A billboard put up Monday in Hollywood has sparked controversy on social media for its depiction of an American soldier and a Muslim woman.

The advertisement, which includes the simple phrase “#betogether”, is for a company called Snore Stop, which sells nasal sprays, oral sprays and pills aimed at preventing customers from snoring.

The Camarillo-based company says the idea behind the ad is that their product, which has been around for 18 years, keeps marriages together.

“It’s a shock factor…. Trying to shock you into looking at it. But to each their own,” onlooker Jan Clair said.

The reason Hollyweird was stunned is because they were "out-stunned" by someone creating something stranger than they create. :silly:
America will never be destroyed from the outside. If we falter and lose our freedoms, it will be because we destroyed ourselves. Abraham Lincoln

Nearly all men can stand adversity, but if you want to test a man's character, give him power. Abraham Lincoln

Be sure you put your feet in the right place, then stand firm. Abraham Lincoln
