The ad titled “Lady Liberty” features model Michal Mesa, which the portland based clothing brand described in as a Marine Corps veteran and a middle school teacher.

A billboard of a clothing company at Times Square showing a female marine veteran hogtying a man resembling US President Donald Trump has gone viral, triggering mixed reactions online even as Trump Junior panned a section of the media for failing to crticise the advertisement.

Set up by activewear brand Dhavani, the ad features a Trump lookalike tied up with red, white and blue ropes as a woman, dressed in activewear, steps on his face. The poster, which was unveiled in a series of tweets, is part of a protest against Trump administration’s “gag rule” that prohibits taxpayer-funded family planning clinics from making abortion referrals.

Titled “Lady Liberty”, the ad features model Michal Mesa, who according to the Portland-based clothing brand, is a Marine Corps veteran and a middle school teacher, the Fox News reported. Another ad depicts a group of women taping the President’s mouth with duct tape.
