(KAMR/NBC) - A controversial billboard in Texas that went viral on social media this week has now been removed.
The political billboard stated, "Liberals please continue on I-40 until you have left our GREAT STATE OF TEXAS."
The sign was placed along Interstate 40 eastbound about 6 miles from Vega, Texas.
After gaining so much attention, the owner of the billboard removed the sign.
He says he didn't realize the billboard's message would be so controversial.
Kyle Mccallie of Fritch, Texas, posted the sign on his Facebook page on June 19. That post was shared more than 20,000 times in just two days.
