Recently, the restaurant got complaints the signs trivialize sexual assault and harassment.

The restaurant owners told the Durango Herald they disagree, pointing out the signs had been in place for four years. They contend the signs only came under fire because a photo went viral on social media.

Still, they made the decision to take them down to keep employees from getting any backlash.

The owners intend to auction off at least one of the signs and donate the money to a local organization combating sexual assault.
