ATLANTIC CITY — Following the first night of the Miss America 2019 preliminary competitions, several signs calling out the organization's board Chairwoman Gretchen Carlson as "so fake" appeared around the city. 

Karen Nocella, executive director of operations for the Miss America Organization, said Thursday the organization had no comment on the matter. Atlantic City police said they are currently looking into who may have posted the signs. No one has taken responsibility. 

On Thursday morning, two posters were spotted hanging from streetlights at Atlantic and Dover avenues and Pacific and Florida avenues, just outside Boardwalk Hall where the competition is taking place.

The estimated 5-foot signs hung from wires on the streetlight poles.

Other posters were seen at bus stops throughout the city, and a blue sash saying "Gretchen Sucks" briefly appeared on the Miss America statue at Kennedy Plaza.
