Oops! Pittsburgh Bus Slogan ‘Zaggin’ Spelled Backward is Ni**az

Bus slogan called offensive

*Well, you may chalk the following up to people just looking for something to complain about, or see it as a real problem.

Those are your options.

However officials at the Port Authority in Pittsburgh confirm that they recently received complaints that one of its slogans, “Ziggin Zaggin,” is offensive when read backwards; and appears to spell out a racial slur (ni**az).

And they are taking the complaints seriously and will remove the slogans from the buses, as a result.

Now you could ask yourself: Who goes around reading things backwards? 

Or you could take this stance: Just another slick move by the white man.

Either way, the slogans, originally created as part of a promotional campaign, will be going buh-bye.

  1. How are we supposed to teach our children about how to deal with bullying, when all the grown ups just knuckle under whenever someone decides they don’t like what you say or do? This has to be the most idiotic piece of mess I’ve read since…I don’t even know when. Ok, here we go now. Be careful about printing the word LIVED on the side of a big building or bus. Some people are offended by the word DEVIL. Ridiculous.

  2. I’m from Pittsburgh and have seen this phrase on the bus for years. I never even gave it a second thought until it was brought to the public’s attention. I don’t think it was done intentionally.
