A CONTROVERSIAL dating website billboard encouraging married men and women to cheat on their partners was defaced today.
Directors of the Marital Affairs’ website had agreed last night to remove its billboard close to Canary Wharf and other sites around the country after thousands of protesters flooded an online campaign to remove them, but not quick enough for one objector.
The giant poster next to Canary Wharf at the roundabout where the busy Aspen Way joins Lower Lea Crossing at Blackwall, by the Isle of Dogs, features a shirtless man with a bra dangling over his shoulder.
It was undamaged at 11pm last night.
But commuters this-morning found it ripped with two chunks shredded off (pictured above).
Meanwhile, another 1,500 protesters registered overnight on the now-renamed Facebook group We stopped maritalaffair.co.uk advertising publicly in the UK, approaching 4,000 names.
The East London Advertiser reported 6pm yesterday that the website has instructed its agency to remove ads from their current campaign following the protests.
