ODESSA - New information on a controversial ad for a local strip club.

It was plastered on a van at a busy Odessa intersection.

As of Friday, it's been moved after a public outcry.

The van was parked at 42nd Street and Tanglewood on Thursday.

It showed women wearing next-to-nothing promoting Jaguar's Gold Club.

One Odessa mom complained it objectified women and she got a lot of support.

She wasn't against the ad, just its location at one of the busiest intersections in town.

Her critics say she's far too overprotective, claiming there are more scantily clad women all over television, the Internet and movies.

The city said the van's advertisement is protected by the first amendment and was not lewd or obscene so it was legal.

As of Friday, the van has been moved but no word on where it is now.
