The posters have certainly gotten city residents talking, if not about the issues White Mike was hoping to stir up. Oklahoma City spokeswoman Kristy Yager told the local paper that the posters are "eyesore in the community." And Nelson thinks tagging the United Way billboard "lacked some tact." So apparently did the group's regional director.
"We find it unfortunate that Ms. Alba chose to vandalize a United Way billboard," United Way of Central Oklahoma director Bob Spinks told The Oklahoman.
Alba may be trying to make it up. According to the paper, Alba's attorney left the impression with a United Way spokeswoman that the actress will make a donation to the charity.
Meanwhile, the city is stuck with trying to get the posters down. Apparently the glue Alba used is "very sticky," Nelson said. "It's been a real pain to remove."
