LOS ANGELES (CBSLA.com) —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.
