A controversial billboard at Interstate 40 and Eastern that urged young women to earn money by finding "sugar daddies" has been taken down.

The billboard was an advertisement for a dating website called ArrangementFinders.com. It featured a former porn star encouraging college-aged women to earn extra money this summer by finding a "sugar daddy." The billboard campaign was banned in other cities, such as Chicago.

Many Oklahomans said the billboard was in bad taste, but some worried it could lead young women to fall victim to human trafficking and prostitution.

After a large outcry, the billboard was taken down late Wednesday night.

A representative from ArrangementFinders.com said the site has nothing to do with prostitution, but is a place for "men and women looking for mutually beneficial arrangements."

The representative said the company plans to expand their efforts in Oklahoma City.
