NEW YORK (1010 WINS) – Donald Trump Jr. is criticizing the lack of outrage over a billboard that shows President Trump hogtied by a woman.

The billboard is from the clothing brand Dhvani. In the ad, Marine Corps vet Michal Mesa wears the company’s clothing as she hogties Trump with a red, white and blue rope while stomping on his face.

Trump Jr. tweeted: “Hey @NYTimes and MSM. Since you had time to thoroughly cover a stupid and tasteless meme seen by 8 people with incredible outrage, I figured you should dedicate the same time and outrage to THIS BILLBOARD IN TIMES SQUARE you hypocrites! Unless of course you’re just full of shit.”

The meme Trump Jr. appeared to be referencing was a violent parody video that went viral last week showing his father killing liberal political opponents and members of the news media.

Dhvani has said it doesn't endorse violence of any kind and that the ads are metaphorical and an artistic expression.

"The billboard is part of a series of images featuring the impersonator being silenced, bound, and gagged by five diverse female models as a direct response to the Administration's gag rule on Title X providers," the company said.

Other ads from the Dhvani campaign show models taping Trump’s mouth shut.

This is not OK. Attacking Gold Star families is not OK. Mocking a disabled American on national TV is not OK. Referring to America’s allies as “shithole countries” is not OK. Calling white supremacists “very fine people” is not OK. Handing your billionaire friends massive handouts in the form of tax cuts paid for by ordinary Americans is not OK. Calling US Congresswomen of color "savages" and telling them to "go back and help fix the totally broken and crime infested places from which they came" is not OK. Consistently trying to sabotage the Affordable Care Act, threatening coverage for millions of American women is not OK. A “Gag Rule” silencing doctors & nurses from providing reproductive healthcare information to their fellow Americans is not OK. None of this is OK. For nearly three long and tiring years, our American patriotism has been exploited. We were told by our current President that he would “make America great again.” Instead, we have a nation more divided than ever before and further away from the ideals that make America truly ‘great.’ Enough is enough. We’re taking a stand. We’re standing up for a woman’s right to choose, which is the law of the land. We’re standing up for women and LGBTQ+ rights. We’re standing up for the un- & under-insured’s ability to access affordable reproductive care. We’re standing up for every American’s right to a healthy life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. Starting today, DHVANI will donate a percentage of our sales to non-profit organizations that support access to reproductive healthcare and fight Trump’s Title X gag rule in Congress. DHVANI is prepared for the fight of our lives. Will you #StandForSomething with us? . **DHVANI produced the images of this campaign to artistically express the frustrations we believe many women share. All images are metaphorical in nature only. DHVANI does NOT and will NEVER condone violence of ANY KIND.**
