Obscene message on electronic sign greets commuters in midtown Charlotte

CHARLOTTE — Commuters in midtown Charlotte were met with a not-so-friendly message on an electronic sign Thursday morning.

The two words on an electronic sign on Stonewall Street near the I-277 on-ramp contained a four-letter expletive followed by the word “you.”

Channel 9 received photos and video from viewers who passed the sign, but by 8:30 a.m., the message had been removed.

We have reached out to the Charlotte Department of Transportation for more information on how this happened. We have not heard back.
