Gov. Cuomo: Proud Boys vandalize NYC, posters removed

Posted: Updated:

Gov. Andrew Cuomo says various posters allegedly created by "The Proud Boys" have been found across New York City.

The far right organization allegedly posted banners featuring anti-Italian American stereotypes and slogans. The posters have been taken down.

The posters were reportedly found in the Lincoln, Holland, Brooklyn Battery and Queens Midtown tunnels as well as on the Manhattan Bridge.

Gov. Cuomo said in a statement, "New York is not intimidated or threatened by these neo-fascists... When you preach hate and division, New York answers with love and unity... There's no place for hate in our state."
