A Morrocan private school that teaches English is behind a strange ad on the streets of Casablanca.

The chosen graphic in the billboard sparked controversy among social media users as it illustrates a person pointing a gun to their head, and next to it a sentence that reads: “If you still don’t speak English [translated from Arabic] ‘go and kill yourself.’”

As a result of the controversy, the school decided to pull the ad. The school also apologized through a Facebook post, to anyone who may have been offended by it.
