Report: ‘Furious’ James Dolan called Rupert Murdoch to complain about anti-Knicks ads
A series of advertisements bashing the Knicks appeared on a New York City subway Tuesday, and owner James Dolan isn’t exactly taking them too well.
According to a report by SportsNet New York’s Adam Zagoria, a “furious” Dolan personally called 21st Century FOX CEO and chairman Rupert Murdoch (the ads were part of a campaign by FOX Sports 1) to complain.
More from Zagoria:
Knicks owner Jim Dolan called Rupert Murdoch on Tuesday and was “furious” about the new Knicks’ Hopeless ad campaign sponsored by FS1 that is running in New York City subways, an industry source said.
They are “dealing with a s–tstorm internally at Fox,” the source said. “If you post something like this you have to expect Dolan’s wrath.”
For what it’s worth though, the ads are reportedly coming down.
