(Newser) – Kentucky native Ashley Judd irked miners when she spoke out against mountaintop coal mining last month, and now they’re using a topless photo taken for a magazine against her. “Ashley Judd makes a living removing her top, why can’t coal miners?” says the poster, displayed at a Kentucky golf tournament. Mountaintop mining involves blasting tops off mountains, PopEater reports.

Officials promised to remove the poster even though, as one golf club manager says, “all the people that was here yesterday, they was all for it.”
