The Controversy Behind T.I.’s AKOO Billboard…What Do You Think?


The billboard for AKOO’s [T.I.’s clothing line ] newest, and clearly most talked about AD — has been forced to be removed, due to the suggestive nature of the AD…(a woman sitting in front of a man … holding onto his unbuttoned jeans … and I guess you can figure out the rest…), and the reaction in Newark and the surrounding area since it went up, has been pretty intense.

Barry Carter for the Star-Ledger first wrote about the billboard on Sunday, saying it seemed like a specific blow to Newark, even quoting City Council President Mildred Crump as saying she was “sick of people seeing Newark as a place where they can just do whatever they want … They think they can just put it in a black community and nobody is going to say or do anything.”

What are your thoughts on this AD?? [post below]
