Colorado, or at least a Coloradan, has fired back at New Mexico in the chile wars.
Remember how the New Mexico Tourism Department recently put up boastful billboards in Colorado? Well, someone took offense to them.
They were meant as a playful jab. A handful of billboards recently put up in Colorado highlight New Mexico as the Chile Capital of the World. Now, photos are surfacing of an alteration to one of those billboards in Colorado Springs.
“The day I found it was when someone went and hung over the billboard and put the zero miles and put the Colorado flag up,” Angel Chaves said. “I thought that was funny, you know, it was like a clap back towards New Mexico for them advertising in Colorado.”
Some Colorado locals feel that’s what New Mexico deserves for having the audacity to trash talk in their state. So, they’re doing some trash talking of their own.
