Local radio station issues 'Big Ben Warning'

(file) (file)

700 WLW has issued a "Big Ben Warning" for Tri-State females age 18-40-- particularly those with boob jobs or who have consumed alcohol. 

The radio station's spoof comes as Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger returns to Cincinnati for Saturday's wild card game against the Bengals. 

The ad's message is as follows: 

"This is a severe Ben Roethlisberger update from 700 WLW.

The Tri-State currently under a severe Big Ben warning from now through early Sunday morning. The Steelers quarterback has been spotted in the downtown Cincinnati area. All females ages 18-40 are to use extreme caution, especially if heavily consuming alcohol. Males should also be on the lookout just in case.

If you see Big Ben and he flashes Little Ben, you are asked to report it to authorities immediately.

"He poses the greatest threat to 18-to-40-year-olds, especially those with boob jobs in the downtown Cincinnati area. You are safe if you live in Butler or Clermont counties, pretty much anywhere in Kentucky and most of southeast Indiana."

Don't get the joke? Some may not consider it one. Roethlisberger has been accused of sexual assault twice-- a 2008 case that has since been settled, and a 2010 case in which charges were never brought, though he served a 6-game suspension in 2010 for violating the NFL's personal conduct laws. 

The spoof ad has caused national controversy after being reported on TMZ Sports, Sporting News and other outlets. 

WEIGH IN: Is this funny or have they taken it too far?
