Marriott Denies Green Day Billboard

The New York Daily News reports Marriott Marquis denied the Independent Film Channel from posting a billboard featuring ’s ‘American Idiot’ album logo: a heart-shaped grenade gripped by a bloodied hand. “We have the right to review all advertising that goes on our buildings,” a Marriott spokeswoman explained, “and if we feel it has any political, pornographic or inappropriate content, we have the right to reject that ad.” IFC exec Evan Shapiro fumed, “We were told that the billboard was distasteful, and that’s ridiculous. I also heard that somebody at Marriott said they hate everything that Green Day stands for.”
