A billboard advertisement for Wesleyan College was removed Monday after officials discovered it had been altered.

Someone used white and black paint to change the sign to read, "Picture yourself a lesbyan."

To promote the upcoming film “Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer,” 20th Century Fox and The Franklin Mint altered 40,000 U.S. quarters to feature the character. The U.S. Mint said in a news release Friday that it learned of the promotional quarter this week and advised the studio and The Franklin Mint they were breaking the law. It is illegal to turn a coin into an advertising vehicle, and violators can face a fine.
