New York, June 30 (ANI): The owners of Georgi Vodka have protested against the MTA removing racy ads of theirs from some buses in Brooklyn.
Vodka company officials are all shaken up about the removal of the ads, which showed the backside of a woman dressed only in a bikini bottom and a woman sitting in the sand with her arms around her knees.
"They hardly gave us any warning. They just took them off the buses," the New York Daily News quoted Martin Silver, the owner of Georgi Vodka producer Star Industries, as saying.
"These ads are clearly not pornography. ... If you don't like what's on a bus, all you have to do is look away and walk past," he said outside the MTA's bus depot on 41st St.
Silver was flanked by several models hired to wear white bikinis with "GEORGI" stamped across the bum and hold signs that read, "MTA should butt out of bikini ads".
An MTA spokesman said officials pulled the ads from buses leaving Flatbush, Ulmer Park and Jackie Gleason depots after Hasidic community members complained. (ANI)
