Controversial billboard re-erected in Chicago

CHICAGO (FOX 32 News) -

A controversial billboard starring Charlie Sheen's ex-goddess and former porn star Bree Olson has returned above the streets of Chicago.

The billboard which made its debut last month near the Rock n'Roll McDonald's in Downtown Chicago was taken down less than a week after it was erected following an outcry from members of the community.

The same billboard, which says,"Because the best job is a b**w job," has been put back up at a new location in Logan Square near Milwaukee Avenue and Diversey Avenue.

The billboard's concept was created by, a dating website for women seeking mutually beneficial relationships. The site boasts it's Bree Olson certified. Its marketing director, A.J. Perkins, says the billboard's taboo topic was in response to Chicago's unemployment rate but he also said Chicago's high female to male ratio attracted the site's creators to the city.

According to Perkins, the billboard's removal was a violation of the first amendment.

"I'm thrilled to see our billboard make it's return to Chicago, the city with more members on ArrangementFinders than anywhere else. Clearly there's a demand for our product in Chicago and we have every right to freely advertise there," Perkins said.

Olson has an exclusive deal with the dating website and is set to appear in TV commercials, billboard campaigns, and radio spots throughout 2013 on its behalf.
