Hillary Clinton Featured On Controversial Dating Site Billboard

Posted: Updated:

CHICAGO - A new billboard for ‘Ashley Madison’ along Harlem and Central allegedly depicts Hillary Clinton in sketch-form.

You could call it a head turner.

“I think it's a tasteless company with a tasteless ad,” said Sam Chapman, CEO of Empower Public Relations.

Ashley Madison’s latest billboard featuring the United States’ former secretary of state could be slowing up traffic on the Stevenson.

The ad is for a dating site for married people looking to have affairs and it reads, "Harder Choices... Lead to Ashley Madison.com." It also shows a sketch of Clinton looking like she's keeping a secret.

The billboard, however, is no secret and is provoking lots of debate and conversation.

“I think Hillary Clinton is an important person in our society and this really takes advantage of someone who doesn't deserve it, and there's something really shameful about what they're up to,” Chapman said.

He thinks the company is trying to ride the coattails of the book Clinton recently launched titled ‘Hard Choices.’ He said that it's inappropriate.

“It’s a tough choice to cheat and therefore joining Ashley Madison.com is even a harder choice than some of the choices she had to make over Benghazi, or whatever difficult choices she had to make,” added Chapman.

When Ashley Madison’s CEO Noel Biderman was asked what he was thinking he said that he thought it was fitting and wasn't poking fun.

“It’s not an easy choice. People, women in particular, don't come to affairs lightly. They try and explore alternatives within their relationship. For many it's a last effort before separation,” said Biderman.

The site has about 14 million members worldwide and almost a million of them live in Chicago.

Also, while Biderman said that he knows some people - especially women - may find it offensive, his goal is to even out the playing field in the battle of the sexes.

“Men have always had the playgrounds to pursue infidelity, strip clubs, massage parlors - that do more than massage - even escorts in Illinois and women haven't had those elements until the internet,” Biderman added.
