Company Burns Controversial Truck Sticker, Donates to Worthy Cause

by at . Comments

Give Hornet Signs credit.

The Texas company came under fire this month for promoting its sign business by attaching a decal to the back of a truck... a decal of a woman tied up and seemingly abducted.

Following extreme backlash against the PR stunt, the company has made a public showing of its retraction: as detailed in the following video, Hornet Signs removed the sticker from the back of its vehicle and burned it on camera.

Owner Brad Kolb also says his company has donated $2,500 to the Advocacy Center for Crime Victims and Children in Waco.

You've gotta appreciate the swift and decisive action taken as an apology by Kolb in this case - and you've gotta wonder: When will Miley Cyrus do the same for unleashing the act of Twerking upon society?
