'Lesbian Porn' Video Appears on Highway Billboard, Sparks Police Investigation

Police are investigating after a pornographic video appeared on a billboard along a major highway in Michigan this weekend.

A digital billboard on Interstate 75 near Auburn Hills aired the smutty video on Saturday night and was spotted by several drivers. The Auburn Hills Police Department is still investigating how it happened, according to ABC's WXYZ Detroit.

The video stream was taken down by the owner of the billboard when they were told what was on it.

Newsweek has contacted the Auburn Hills Police Department for further information on the incident and the progress of its investigation.

A witness of the pornographic billboard near the Michigan 59 highway, Dr. Justin Kammo, told WXYZ that he saw people "brake a lot" behind him, adding: "Cause I think they were doing the same thing, like a double take."

He also described the video as "lesbian porn" and said he "kinda almost got in an accident" when he spotted it.

The billboard blunder near Auburn Hills, Michigan comes weeks after McDonald's revealed it was putting bee "hotels" in the back of billboards in Sweden. The fast food chain's joint campaign with advertising firm JC Decaux launched early in September with six bee "hotels" being fitted into the back of a billboard in Jarfalla.

Holes were drilled into the front of the sign reading "always open" as part of the initiative, aimed at saving bees by offering them spaces to live. McDonald's said franchisees would "have the opportunity to order their own bee hotel billboards and customize the messaging" when the brand announced its initiative.

In August this year, a gun store owner in North Carolina replaced a billboard attacking four congresswomen, known as "the squad." The billboard depicting Democratic representatives Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Rashida Tlaib, Ayanna Pressley and Ilhan Omar as the four horsemen of the apocalypse was taken down following a raft of complaints in the wake of mass shootings in El Paso, Texas and Dayton, Ohio.

But Cherokee Guns owner Doc Wacholz refused to apologise over the billboard, telling local station WTVC-TV: "I don't care if it was four white women or four white guys that had their view -- they'd be on the billboard."

Speaking about the billboard in a tweet, Tlaib asked: "How the hell is this not inciting violence?"

"#Racist rhetoric from the occupant of the @WhiteHouse has made hate our new normal," Massachusetts Rep. Pressley also said in response to the sign.
