The Man in the High Castle ads, featuring Nazi imagery, pulled from NY subway
Subway seats were wrapped in ads featuring Nazi and Imperial Japan insignias
An ad campaign that featured Nazi imagery has been pulled from the New York City subway system.
Seats on the 42nd Street shuttle between Times Square and Grand Central Terminal were wrapped in Nazi regalia to promote an Amazon drama series called The Man in the High Castle, based on the 1962 novel by Philip K. Dick.
The show depicts the aftermath of the Second World War as if the Axis powers triumphed.
The region's transit network, the Metropolitan Transportation Authority, approved the ads, which first appeared earlier this month.
The agency also initially defended the ads, saying they met its guidelines.
But many public officials condemned them. Mayor Bill de Blasio called them "irresponsible and offensive."
Officials confirmed Wednesday that Gov. Andrew Cuomo ordered them removed.
