An ad about boob sweat.
In a press release, Goodwipes president Charlie Siciak said: “whether you’re in a crowded elevator at Comic Con or forgot you had no running hot water, Goodwipes is the answer to the question…how the heck do I not feel like a slimy bowl of beef consommé sitting out for three-days?”

A spokesman for Airbnb, confirmed the company would remove the ads immediately: “The intent was to show the hotel tax contribution from our hosts and guests, which is roughly $1 million per month”. Airbnb tweeted:
We apologize for Wednesday’s SF ads. They displayed poor judgment and do not live up to the values and humanity of our global community.
