DETROIT — A group of anonymous Detroit Lions fans angry about the penalty calls in Monday night's loss to the Green Bay Packers are taking out their frustrations with a billboard.

The billboard from Outfront Media features a referee doing the "hands-to-the-face" gesture while also wearing a cheesehead.

According to Outfront, the billboards are running along major highways in metro Detroit. Those include:

– Northbound I-75 & Westminister
– I-275 south of 10 Mile
– I-94 south of 23 Mile
– I-96 east of Milford
– I-75 & Waterman
– I-94 & Middlebelt
– I-94 north of Masonic

The billboards are running through the end of the week, and it's from the same group of anonymous fans who purchased a billboard against the refs in 2015.
