(WIAT) — Tempers continue to flare over a controversial billboard in Birmingham.

City and county leaders are being inundated with requests to have the billboard removed.

The billboard is located near the Birmingham-Shuttlesworth International Airport.

The commission voted this week to ask the sign’s owner to take it down.
