Pizza Shop Posts Controversial Sign

VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. (WTKR) -- The owner of Windy City Pizza on General Booth Boulevard posted a sign that appeared to reference the controversial topic of transgender restrooms.

The sign read, "We have a men's room. We have a ladies room. If this confuses you, we can help!"

A viewer first alerted NewsChannel 3 about the sign Monday evening, the same day that North Carolina and the U.S. government announced lawsuits against one another over the controversial so-called bathroom bill known as HB2.

By Tuesday afternoon, the sign had been changed.
