A billboard for a racist and anti-black song in California’s Schitt’s Creek neighborhood was spotted in the neighborhood by a local news outlet.
The billboard, with a slogan that says “Bad Bunny”, has a picture of a bunny and the phrase “Bunny, you can’t say it.”
Schitt’s creek, located in the San Fernando Valley, is a predominantly white area that has seen a rise in anti-Blackness in recent years.
In February, a group of anti-police protesters in the area held a demonstration and marched on the California Highway Patrol station in protest of the arrest of several Black people in Oakland.
The video below shows the sign with the slogan: “You cant say it, you cant say the N-word.”
It was spotted by the local news station, KPIX TV.
In the video, a woman can be heard saying: “That’s racist, that’s racist.”
The billboard was first spotted by a passerby in front of the house where the billboard was set up, and was later taken down.
Local residents have said the sign is a racist message that is intended to incite fear and disrespect.
They say the sign also promotes ignorance, especially about Black people.
The San Fernando Riverfront has been a popular destination for people to go to the river for recreation, with some locals saying the sign promotes racism.
“It’s not racist.
It’s not anti-Semitic, it’s just anti-racist.
It just says ‘Bad Bunny,'” said one resident, who asked to remain anonymous.”
I’ve heard that song and that song is anti-Jewish, anti-Christian, anti-[Black] culture, and the same song was used on a billboard for ‘Killing White People.’
It’s just wrong.”
The sign is on the west side of the street and was painted with white paint, while a black and red banner with the word “Bad Bunnies” was painted on the other side of it.
A spokesperson for the billboard company that commissioned the billboard, Vero Beach Advertising, told KPIX that they did not have plans to remove the billboard.
“We’re sorry to hear about the incident and we’re taking it very seriously,” said Vero Advertising spokeswoman, Kristina Burchard.
