Provocative advertisements equating Muslim radicals with savages appeared in New York City subways on Monday, drawing immediate criticism from some riders.
"It's a terrible idea," said Colby Richardson at a subway station in midtown Manhattan. "It's going to spark controversy obviously when you deem one side savages and the other side civilized."
Said another rider, Cameron McCabe: "I think it's unfortunate that someone would want to put that up." But, she added, "I think it's their right to do so."
