New York State Republicans got creative on Twitter Tuesday, turning the "Fifty Shades of Grey" frenzy into a spoof of Mayor Bill de Blasio and what they imply is his submissive relationship with the Rev. Al Sharpton.
"You've heard of #50ShadesOfGrey? Well here's 50 Shades of Bill," @NewYorkGOP tweeted, along with the mock movie poster above.
The poster, which features Sharpton as dominant Christian Grey and de Blasio as submissive Anastasia Steele, says de Blasio is "tied up by his habitual tardiness," "dominated by the duties of his office" and "handcuffed by his poor management of the NYPD."
The mayor's office has not issued a response.
