Brooklyn, NY - Dumbo Moving Firm Blames Orthodox Jews For Removal Of Racy Images On Trucks

Brooklyn, NY - The owner of a Brooklyn moving company whose advertisements were refused by the Metropolitan Transit Authority one year ago for being too risque has found his ads rejected again, this time finding one of his trucks repainted after leaving it parked in Flatbush.

Lior Rachmany of Dumbo Moving and Storage created an advertising campaign that depicted people in various scenarios and promised clients extra protection for their valuables.  While the MTA agreed to run two of Rachmany’s ads, the third was vetoed because of its adult content.  Undaunted, Rachmany slapped his ad on the back of 15 of his 56 trucks, which have been driving around Brooklyn streets for the past year.

Since then, Rachmany has found himself the recipient of hundreds of angry phone calls. Two weeks ago Rachmany received a call warning him to remove the ads or face consequences.  Several hours later, one of Rachmany’s trucks, which had been parked near a Flatbush yeshiva, was sporting a new look, the controversial ad covered by a new coat of solid gray paint.

Rachmany is assuming that the vandals are Orthodox Jews,  but declined to file a police report because of “the muscle this community has.” He said that the vandalism will cost him $2,000 to repair and that he intends to put the racy advertisement back on the same truck.

Rachmany told The New York Post that he has received phone calls telling him that he will burn in hell for his sins and others from rabbis in Flatbush opposed to the images visible on his vehicles as they traverse local streets.

One Orthodox woman told The Post that Dumbo’s campaign has no place in the area.

“Their ads have no morals,” said. “It’s like bringing a rated-R movie onto the streets, and you can’t get away from it because it’s parked right there at your corner.”

In a March 2015 interview with The Observer, Rachmany defended his R-rated campaign.

“I think this is a great message, even for younger crowds,” he said. “Sooner or later, if they’re going to be in any kind of act of affection, they should have protection. I know I’m going to teach my kids that. I do not see anything negative about it.”

Im not for vandalizing others properties,period.

Having said,this Rachmany guy comes across as a very disrespectful person. He could care less about anyone.Even the MTA refused the ad which means that not only religious Jews are offended by money hungry grubby Rachmany every sane modest non-Jew is offended as well.

Rachmany,shame on you for not caring about feelings of fellow human beings. It wouldn't surprise me that he is a Frei Jew.

I'm usually not for taking the law into your own hands but I have no problem with what these "painters" did. The streets are public domain and should be suitable for the eyes of the general public. These advertisements are over the line and meant to shock people and get attention. This guys publicity grab at our expense should be stopped.

Just because Rachmany has the constitutional right to be offensive doesn't mean he is obligated to.

That's one moving company that I wouldn't even consider. I wonder if the picture on the truck represented one of the company employees with a customer.

Sounds like a guy that will go all out to spite the community. How about evening out the tires with the pavement?

These are the same protesters who wanted babies faces removed from pampers boxes because the babies were too stimulating.

Lior Rachmony is an Israeli Jew. Unfortunately for him and for us, his values remain non-existent and if he's willing to pay 2K each time his truck gets painted over, then so be it.

Shame on this tippish !

Yes. You can teach your children as you wish; but where do you get the right to infuse MY children with your degenerative values?

If he parks his truck near the mosque, his tires might get flattened and his truck might be painted a different color.

Yet another "perk" of Zionism. This guy was probably shmaded by the Zionists and thinks that European decadence is the most desirable thing on the Earth to make the Zionist nation into another France or Belgium. Presumably, he is just bringing that Zionist "value" into his business here.

Leaving aside your L"H (or Motzi Shem Ra) on Yeshiva dorms, I wonder where else you will not find such a picture being paraded around NYC.

By comparison, on the subway, there were ads for the "Museum of [Intercourse]". That ad shows an unclothed woman from the waist up with the word [Intercourse] covering her chest area. The idea was conveyed but in a tasteful way. An adult understands what the ad is promoting while the child who sees it doesn't really register anything.

That's "dai lachakima..." This ad, however, is "explicit" other than the actors being mostly dressed. The graphical "remiza" here is explicit, and that is what is so offensive.

Does NY not have any laws against putting obscene pictures on trucks? If not why can't our Jewish lawmakers work on that. If he is israeli, he has been brainwashed to hate orthodox jews and this is how he is expressing it. He obviously lacks attention, and maybe a positive approach from the community can change his ways better than cursing him.
