Controversial anti-Islam NYC Subway ads draw expected response
Remember conservative blogger Pamela Geller? Oh yeah, her. Well, her organization released these ads all over the New York subway system to tell people how awful Islam is. (FWIW, the NYC subway system only allowed them to run after going to court over the ads.) Understandably, people reacted strongly, defacing them and covering them with stickers that say things like “RACIST.” You can see why they might do that considering the content of the ads. Well, it looks like these protests have led to an arrest — and it was actually someone sort of famous. Well-known Egyptian-American journalist and activist Mona Eltahawy was arrested for spraying graffiti on one of these ads Tuesday evening. “I’m an Egyptian-American and I refuse hate,” she said in a video of her arrest. (photo via Mondoweiss)
