Will ‘Slangin & Bangin in Utah’ be cut next?

Virginia is for lovers, not criminals. That’s why their
state tourism agency is pulling
ads where the models inadvertently flash a gang sign
. Apparently, the
heart shape they make with their hands is nearly identical to the gesture of the
Gangster Disciples, a Chicago-based street gang that has a presence in pretty
much every urbanized state except Virginia. Even better, this heart sign that struck fear
into Virginia’s tourism bigwigs is one of about 7 billion Gangster Disciple
symbols
, and I really doubt anyone would think of them first when they saw the
posters. So is Virginia for paranoiacs, too?
