Vodka Company To Remove Offensive Billboards

Wodka Vodka released an announcement via its Twitter feed that the company had decided to remove its controversial holiday billboards.  The billboards were displayed in several New York area locations containing a large text tagline, “CHRISTMAS QUALITY, HANUKKAH PRICING.”  Above the large text contained an image of two dogs– one with a yarmulke and the other with a Santa Claus hat.

The New York Regional Office of the Anti-Defamation League (ADL) called the billboards, “crude and offensive.”  Ron Meier, the director of the regional office was pleased that the company acted quickly and appropriately in recognizing that the billboard was offensive to many and should be removed.
