Poster gal released from jail, proud of color scheme
The Egyptian-born activist arrested for defacing an inflammatory subway ad that called the enemies of Israel "savages" said yesterday her pink spray-paint protest was inspired by equal parts fashion and pacifism.
"It was pink to match my pink raincoat [and] because pink is the least violent color of all," Mona Eltahawy, 45, said after being arraigned in Manhattan on misdemeanor charges of criminal mischief, making graffiti and possession of a graffiti instrument. She is due back in court on Nov. 30.
Eltahawy — whom The Post videotaped spray-painting one of the ads in Times Square — was one of five people arrested in Manhattan Tuesday for allegedly defacing the subway signs.
