UPDATE 7:31 PM EDT THURSDAY, 27 MAY 2021 --
LAKE ST. LOUIS, Mo. – A racially offensive poster outside a Popeye’s drive-thru in Lake St. Louis has prompted a police investigation, but authorities say the restaurant and its employees had nothing to do with the sign.
“We are currently working and investigating a trespassing and possibly a related vandalism case which occurred at Popeyes located at 6475 Ronald Reagan Drive in Lake Saint Louis,” according to a police statement. “Earlier this month, several drive through menu signs were spray-painted.

Additional photos of the sign in question have been sent to us and the one below shows the local reaction was not favorable:
