Racist, Anti-Islamic San Francisco Bus Ads Have Been Awesomely Defaced With Kamala Khan

EMBIGGEN!

Some of San Francisco’s buses are currently plastered with a series of Islamophobic “ads” that were paid for by the Freedom Defense Initiative, an anti-Islamic organization that has been labeled a hate group by the government of the United Kingdom. Some of San Francisco’s citizens, according to Street Cred – Advertising for the Community’s Facebook post, have edited some of those ads in a pretty awesome way: with Marvel’s biggest digitally selling superhero, Ms. Marvel, the alter ego of Kamala Khan, a American, first-generation-immigrant, and Muslim teen. We have only one thing to say about this, and that is Excelsior!
