An optical illusion of a woman bound and gagged in the back of a pickup truck has fueled outrage on social media, according to MetroUK.

The image of the woman was seen on a truck in England.

MetroUK reports a mother with her 3-year-old child called police and posted pics of the truck online in hopes to get the image banned.

Those against the image say that making a joke about violence against women is unacceptable.

After a growing protest, MetroUK says the police gave the vehicle owner 48 hours to remove it from their car.

It’s not known if the owner removed it.

An officer said the image was ‘very offensive and deeply shocking’.

An image similar to this one has popped up in Texas in the past.
