Officials say they’ve recently received complaints that one of its slogans, “Ziggin Zaggin,” is offensive when read backwards, seeming to spell out a racial slur.
Jim Ritchie with the Port Authority says they will remove the messages from buses.
“… due to recent complaints about how this message appears when read backward, we have decided to remove the message from our vehicles,” he said. “This will take us several days to properly remove. We apologize to anyone who may have been offended.”
When religious lunatics complained about records that when played backwards had hidden Satanic messages, they were rightfully dismissed as lunatics. But when a SJW sees a hidden message in a bus slogan, it has to be treated as a Totes Serious Heteronormative Microaggression Trigger.
