A Wodka Vodka billboard in New York has been pulled down for its anti-Semitic sentiment. The billboard depicts two dogs with the caption "Christmas Quality, Hanukkah Pricing" -- a slogan that warranted intervention from the Anti-Defamation League.
"In a crude and offensive way of trying to make a point that their vodka is high quality and inexpensive, the billboards evoke a Jewish holiday to imply something that is cheap and of lesser value when compared to the higher value of a Christian holiday," a representative from the ADL wrote in a statement.
Brian Gordon, the Wodka Vodka representative in charge of the anti-Semitic billboards, told the Washington Post that the ad was meant to express the "understated" nature of Hanukkah. Do you think the ad is in poor taste?
