A new Ad for Metro placed inside a Washington, D.C. station is sparking some controversy this week.
The ad depicts two women having a conversation. One woman is touting the improvements of the metro by stating "A Metrobus travels about 8,260 miles between breakdowns. Didn't know that, did you?"
The second woman responds: "Can we just talk about shoes?"
In response to the ad's backlash by the public, the Metro released a statement:
"The point is to get people talking about METRO's massive rebuilding effort by juxtaposing technical facts with a variety of light responses and conversation between friends. Some of the ads contain men, some contain women."
