Waterloo police say 'demeaning' message spray painted on a bed sheet was removed

Police say they received complaints about a message that was spray painted on a bed sheet and hung outside a house in Waterloo on Saturday during a university's homecoming celebrations.

Waterloo regional police say the sign had an ``inappropriate'' message and that officers attended the residence immediately to ensure it was taken down.

Police say the sign read, ``She called you daddy 4 18 years. Now it's our turn.''

Many people took to social media to react to the sign. 

“I didn’t think anyone in this community would do something so terrible,” said 12-year-old Isabella Spencer, who sent a photo of the sign to CTV News in Kitchener. 

Investigators say they share the community's concern over what the police force calls a ``demeaning and disturbing message.''

Wilfrid Laurier University wrote in a statement that some of its students live in the house, which they say is located near the university.

The university also says they will be following up with those students and reviewing the incident under the non-academic student code of conduct.
