Comedian/street artist Hanksy pasted up this “Eazy-E Bola” on the corner of Division and Canal Streets in Chinatown and posted it on his Instagram with the caption “Straight Outta Congo.” The piece mashes up the Ebola epidemic that has been spreading through West Africa with Eazy-E, the rapper who died from that other Africa-originating plague, AIDS.

It is my job, as this copyranter character, to try my hardest to type caustic hatred about every ad ever produced by anybody. Usually, it’s easy. Occasionally, I have to fake it. But sometimes, rarely, I can’t muster much real or synthetic bile. Like with this new French AIDS awareness video […]
