Bloomberg to Critics of Anti-Obesity Ad: 'Take Your Poison'

Some Call Campaign Featuring Amputee Too Graphic

By Published on .

According to NY1, Michael Bloomberg today defended the current crop of anti-obesity ads. It seems that some people find the ad featuring a person with an amputated leg too graphic. (It's unclear who "some people" are, however.)

Bloomberg offered a supersized portion of smackdown: "What do you want to do? Do you want to have people lose their legs or do you want to show them what happens so that they won't lose their legs? Take your poison. Which do you want? You can't have it both ways."
