VEGA, Texas — The Texas billboard urging liberals to get out of the state went viral, but will be taken down following backlash.
According to KDFW, the owner of the advertising company said the billboard that reads "Liberals, please continue on I-40 until you have left our GREAT STATE OF TEXAS" will be taken down and the buyer will be reimbursed.
The billboard is located along Interstate 40 near Vega.
Facebook user Kyle Mccallie of Fritch shared a photo of the sign Tuesday.
"Billboard 6 miles east of Vega on I-40 east bound! I like it," he quipped in his Facebook post, which has been shared more than 12,000 times.
