SENATOR YEE STATEMENT ON OFFENSIVE MUNI ADS

SAN FRANCISCO – Senator Leland Yee (D-San Francisco/San Mateo) issued the following statement regarding offensive ads recently displayed on Muni buses in San Francisco and paid for by the American Freedom Defense Initiative:

“These advertisements have no place in San Francisco or any community that cares about and respects our diversity. The AFDI ads are offensive and unacceptable and only serve to spread hate and fear. Such hateful speech should never go unchallenged. I support local efforts to combat AFDI’s insidious comments and I encourage our community to unite to spread peace and justice.”
