Offensive Mailers Cause Uproar
A month ago Doris Edwards walked outside of her home then stopped right in her tracks.
In her drive was what looked like to her, like a fifty dollar bill and crack cocaine.
It was really an advertisement for Liberty Tax Service on Southwest 35th Boulevard.
Gainesville's Police Department says Edwards was one of several people who called into complain about the mailers.
Edwards says the ad was offensive to a neighborhood that has worked to improve it's image.
TV20 spoke with the owner of Liberty Tax Service on southwest 35th and he said that the mailers were never intended to look like drugs.
He also said the company pulled the advertisement as soon as they heard it was offensive to some people.
