Truck Decal Being Called "Just Sick." What Do You Think?
A Waco, Texas sign company, wanting to drum up business for their truck decals, got more than they bargained for when they created a truck tailgate decal showing a bound and gagged woman.
The decal shows a blonde woman in jeans curled up on the bed of a pickup truck, her hair obscuring her face and her hands and feet tied with rope. It's meant to be slapped on a truck's tailgate, creating an optical illusion of an actual woman lying in distress.
As a Waco tv station reports, the general public starting calling 911 when the decal was placed on one fo the company's trucks and driven around town. There has been a public outcry that the decal is disgusting.
But the owner of Hornet Signs it's done wonders for their business. There has been an uptick in decal orders.
However, one survivor of abuse calls it "just sick." Stephanie Henry says, "I'm a huge defender of free speech. But to use an image like this to try and sell more vehicle wraps is outrageous and wrong. It makes me ill to learn that it's actually bringing this company new business."
