Last night, drivers in downtown Los Angeles got a message about literacy: 'Read a f*cking book.'The message came via a hacked portable LED traffic sign in Bunker Hill, LA Weekly reports.

No one is sure who hacked the sign, but it wouldn't be the first time it's happened in downtown L.A. Local electro-dance band Fartbarf once appeared on a sign, advertising a fictitious show with Hall & Oates.
