This is irresponsibly, hypocritical and absolute BS. Now back to boner ads, and coming soon, completely unethcical political ads 24/7....

Let them know how ridiculous they are and what horrible PR for the city this is. The New York Times covered this.

Let them know. Included here are their top sales people, let them know as well:

Thanks for posting that contact information. Emails have been sent. This is very disappointing to hear. I thought we were better than this?
