Knicks Pull Controversial Ads

“It’s Friday night. You can either go out and attempt to pick up sixes and sevens or stay home and watch (Jason) Kidd dish out dimes.”

Sure, the Nets’ marketing campaign of billboards promoting its first season helps remind New Yorkers that it’s no longer a one-team race. But there’s no reason to push the envelope this far with such poor taste.

The New York Post reported that MSG Network apologized for another ad that took a shot at the Broadway show “Spiderman: Turn off the Dark.”

It read:

“It’s Friday night. You can either see a Broadway harness malfunctioning or you can watch real men fly.”

It was considered poor taste because several actors from the Broadway show were seriously injured in December 2010.
