We don't condone vandalizing, but we have to admit, the changes one person made to this plastic surgery billboard are brilliant!
The ad, put up by Ann Arbor Plastic Surgery in Jackson, Mich., originally featured a photo of two muffins wearing jeans next to the phrase, "Friends don't let friends muffin top," which refers to excess flesh spilling over the top of a person's waistband.
But over the weekend, someone sprayed "You're beautiful!" on the billboard, adding smiley faces to the muffins while placing a giant "X" over the slogan.
The director of the practice, Dr. Pramit Malhotra, said his office was stunned by the reaction.
“Some people felt that it was an attack on people who are overweight, and that certainly wasn’t the intention,” he told Today.com. “It was meant to be light-hearted and (directed at) people who are looking to make positive self-image changes.”
While the practice said they won't be taking down the ad, they did remove and apologize for a previous one last April after receiving complaints. That billboard showed two coffee cups — a small one with the letter "B" and a larger one with the letter "D" — featuring the slogan, "Size matters."
When the company asked it's Facebook users what they thought of the new "muffin" billboard, readers gave a wide range of responses.
One commented, "Very tacky. Would prefer to see before & after scar removal, etc. This isn't funny, just rude," while another said, "I see nothing wrong with it. You are advertising a service.....I don't understand what ppl [sic] are so offended by."
The term "muffin top" has been a popular topic recently after one woman made headlines for dedicating an entire music video to hers, which you can watch below!
