BROOKLYN - Lane Bryant is under fire from some city officials after its #ImNoAngel ads appeared on subway lines.

The campaign shows women in their underwear.

Councilman David Greenfield says he's gotten complaints from families saying they are shocked to see the ads in their community.

Greenfield is now calling for the MTA to remove them from the subway. The MTA regularly turns down ads it deems inappropriate. Most recently, an ad for DUMBO Moving and Storage was rejected.

News 12 reached out to the MTA and Lane Bryant about the ads and is waiting for a response.
