Marriott Marquis Rejects IFC Green Day Billboard

After seeing the artwork, showing a grenade held in a bloodied hand, for a billboard promoting IFC's year-long hook up with Green Day, Marriott rejected the 28 X 43 foot placement on the side of its Times Square Marriott Marquis hotel. After learning the board was banned last Friday, Green Day's Billie Joe Armstrong thought it was an April Fool's joke. But a Marriott spokesman clarified any misunderstanding, telling the Daily News, "We have the right to review all advertising that goes on our buildings and if we feel it has any political, pornographic or inappropriate content, we have the right to reject that ad."
