Craig & Robbie Billboard Defaced On Beverly Boulevard; Anti-Gay Hate Crime?

Craig & Robbie Billboard Defaced On Beverly Boulevard; Anti-Gay Hate Crime?
Global Voice Broadcasting

The L.A. billboard of of a gay online radio show has been defaced for the second time, according to its Hollywood broadcaster.

The advertisement for "The Craig & Robbie Hour" looks like it's been splooged by a massively horny fan, but the internet radio company is taking it as a "hate crime."

According to Global Voice Broadcasting:

Radio show "The Craig and Robbie Hour," hosted by two gay men on a local internet radio station was the victim of vandalism for the second time on Friday, November 2nd. It is reported to be a hate crime ...

The same thing happened -- the billboard was painted over -- several months ago, says Global. The company says the matter has been reported to the LAPD.

Upcoming Events

The billboard is at Beverly Boulevard and Formosa Avenue, near Hollywood. The broadcaster has a theory about who's behind this, but it's one that unsubstantiated and, thus, one we can't repeat.

Co-host Craig Olsen has an interior design showroom in the neighborhood. We reached out to the broadcaster to find out if the billboard would be replaced one more time; he had yet to hear back.

In any case, the folks behind this show want the cops to bust a move. Or bust someone:

So far, a police report has been made, but no one has been brought to justice. The aggressive vandalism has cost the advertising company and Mr. Olsen thousands to replace and [is] seemingly being left un-pursued by authorities.
