A passerby in a flier supporting Bill Thompson can be seen flipping the camera off.
The unidentified man seen in the background of a flier to promote the former city comptroller's bid for mayor is sticking his middle finger out, according to a copy obtained by The New York Post.
A source close to the campaign told the Post the man is only pushing his sunglasses up.
A Thompson spokesman told the Post the fliers weren't generated by the campaign.
The ad was paid for by United For the Future, a new Political Action Committee seemingly launched by the United Federation of Teachers, which endorsed Thompson, Politicker reported.
