The New Orleans CVB has decided to not run the "This isn't the first time New Orleans has survived the British" print ad due to the fact that it was being misinterpreted by many people as anti-British.
Kelly Schulz, VP of communications for the New Orleans CVB told Ad Age: "This was one particular tagline in one print ad that we have since pulled because it was misinterpreted by a lot of people. It was not our intention to be anti-British. That was not the purpose of this campaign but that's how it's been dubbed. The United Kingdom is our second largest international market after Canada. And that's another reason we would never launch an anti-British campaign as this is being dubbed inaccurately."
