Larry Flynt’s ads causing problems again

HustlerclubIt was a year ago that ads on coffee cups for Larry Flynt’s Hustler Clubs got some Manhattanites all hot and bothered and tested the mettle of New York Daily News headline writers (“Some want their daily grind without a bump”). Now, people in New Jersey are upset that a giant billboard advertising the clubs has gone up right next to an elementary school. A 16-year-old who picked up his 7-year-old sister from the McKinley School in North Bergen sums up the sentiment: “When I first saw it, I was like, ‘Whoah!’” Stripping is a theme for billboards in the area, apparently. Recently the McKinley School had to deal with the Howard Stern ad that read, “Let freedom ring. And let it be rung by a stripper.”
