AUSTIN, Texas (KEYE) – A new billboard off interstate 35 is causing a lot of dispute among Austin’s citizens. The advertisement hints undocumented immigrants should join the Arrangementfinders.com dating site to avoid deportation.
The sign reads, “Undocumented Immigrant? Before You Get Deported, Get a Sugar Daddy,” and it is just off highway I-35 near Frontage Road.
Jacob Webster, the online’s site CMO says he decided to run the ad “in response to Donald Trump’s promise to deport all 11 million of the nation’s undocumented immigrants.”
“ArrangementFinders.com skews heavily towards Hispanic women, with that demo making up over 31% of all the females on our site nationally and over 53% in Austin,” said Webster.
The company launched back in 2009, and now has about 3.9 million members in the US, Canada, UK, and Australia.
Even though ArrangementFinders.com did not mean the billboard to seem racist, many are questioning the provocative message.
