KENNEWICK, Wash. (AP) – A health board in Washington state has reversed itself and voted against endorsing a colon cancer awareness campaign that uses billboards saying, “What’s up your butt?”

The Tri-City Herald reports that Wednesday’s vote by the Benton Franklin Health District in Kennewick, Wash., was in response to complaints the ads are in poor taste.

The butt billboards were earlier displayed in Yakima to raise colorectal cancer awareness and encourage people to get screened for the disease.
