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.
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.
