Homeless bumper sticker controversy heats up in OB

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - A controversial bumper sticker is getting plenty of reaction in Ocean Beach.

The sticker states "Welcome to Ocean Beach. Don't feed our bums."

The sticker was co-created by Ken Anderson, who works in OB. He says the message is directed at a new, young group of transients who are aggressive and disrespectful toward residents and tourists.

"I use the term reasonable intolerance, that's all. And it's not a blanket statement toward the homeless. It's primarily for the traveling street kids who don't have a sense of connection with this community," Anderson said.

Some people approve of the bumper sticker's message, while others say it promotes a message of hate.
