A CFL Team Pulls Subway Ads That May Or May Not Encourage You To Beat Your Spouse
It's in response to a campaign by Toronto councillor Mike Layton, who claims the ad makes light of domestic violence.
"The ad may also trigger traumatic responses in the many survivors of domestic violence who are courageously moving forward with their lives," Layton (son of Canadian federal government opposition leader Jack Layton) wrote in a letter to the president & CEO of the Argonauts.
Layton later posted the letter to his blog.
The campaign is just the latest snafu for the constantly-snafued Argos, who have the CFL's worst attendance despite representing Canada's largest city.
The ads were subject to a review by the Toronto Transit Commission due to receiving at least five complaints, the National Post reported Wednesday.
