AKOO Billboard in Newark Causing Moral Controversy


People are pissed about a billboard for AKOO (T.I.'s clothing line) that is currently set up in Newark, New Jersey. The image shows a man wearing an unbuttoned pair of AKOO jeans with a woman tugging on them, and his hand on the back of her head, seemingly pulling her closer to his groin area. Many people are kvetching about the picture's implication of oral sex, though Newark Mayor Cory Booker saw a different problem — he says this billboard encourages young men to continue to wear their pants too low. Yes, droopy trousers, that's the problem here. [Gothamist]
