Muni's "Defeat Jihad" Ad Gets Makeover, Guerrilla-Style (Updated)

Posted By on Fri, Aug 17, 2012 at 8:35 AM

Since Muni is refusing to take down the controversial pro-Israel ad on its buses, offended passengers have taken this matter into their own hands.

Take a look at this photo that's been making the rounds on Facebook:

We haven't been able to track down the originator of this guerrilla art, nor have we been able to get a comment from Muni to see how officials there feel about the latest crop of free speech. But what we can tell you is that people are loving the new look.

Update (9 a.m.): Muni Spokesman Paul Rose says he's seen this photo

online, and is currently conducting "research" to find out if it's

"real" or Photoshop.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
