In New York City’s traditionally seamy Times Square, a church is claiming that a billboard featuring bare derrières emblazoned with smiley faces violates indecency standards in the cleaned-up midtown Manhattan neighborhood.
And, for the moment, at least, a judge has agreed, issuing a temporary restraining order barring the two-story bidet billboard from being installed on the building in which the church is located, reports the New York Times.
The suit was filed by the interdenominational Times Square Church against the building’s landlord and the billboard sign company.
