Mayor de Blasio blasts anti-Islamic ad campaign as 'outrageous, inflammatory and wrong''

Source: New York Daily News:

Calling them “outrageous, inflammatory and wrong,” Mayor de Blasio on Friday blasted an incendiary new ad campaign that bashes aspects of Islam.


One of the ads, which will appear on 100 buses and at two subway entrances, includes an image of American journalist James Foley just before he was beheaded.

In a statement to the Daily News, de Blasio said the ads had “no place in New York City, or anywhere.”
“These hateful messages serve only to divide and stigmatize when we should be coming together as one city,” de Blasio said.
