The poster was created by Pamela Geller, Executive Director of the American Freedom Defense Initiative.
Geller’s previous subway posters, below, were all defaced (here’s some examples) the first day they went up, back in September.
In response, The Metropolitan Transit Authority (MTA) will be adding the disclaimer seen on the above pre-press poster.
In anticipation of another round of defacements, Geller told the New York Observer that she printed twice as many ads this time. She added: “I refuse to abridge my free speech so as to appease savages.”
