MURRIETA (CBSLA.com) — A plastic surgeon’s billboard is stirring up controversy in Riverside County as a local high school student has launched a petition to have the sign taken down.
The sign, near the 15-215 Freeway interchange in the Murrieta area, features two coffee cups — a smaller one, labeled “B,” and a larger one, labeled “D.” Above the cups are two words: “Size Matters.”
It didn’t sit well with high school student Anna Gorski of Murrieta, who launched a Change.org petition to have the billboard taken down that has gained hundreds of signatures.
“I don’t think size matters,” Gorski said. “I don’t think a billbaord should be telling me that size matters.”
She expounded on the subject further in her petition.
“This billboard is demeaning, objectifying, and inappropriate as it attacks women’s bodies and promotes low self-esteem,” the petition said.
