**NYPD Pride Month Design Raises Eyebrows Amid Suspicion of Hidden Anti-Police Acronym**

During the celebration of Pride Month, NYPD Commissioner Keechant Sewell reveals a unique police vehicle decorated with a Pride logo. However, social media users question if the design concealed an anti-police acronym, sparking debate and controversy.

As part of Pride Month festivities and in acknowledgment of the unwavering commitment of @GOALny to promote universal acceptance and inclusion for the LGBTQIA+ community, the New York Police Department unveiled a dedicated police vehicle featuring a Pride logo. The novel design, initially intended to celebrate the remarkable contributions of the LGBTQIA+ community to the city and department, soon became a point of contention on social media.

Critics drew attention to the phrase “All Colors are Beautiful” that accompanied the logo. While seemingly innocuous, the phrase can also be abbreviated to ACAB, which doubles as an anti-police acronym meaning ‘All Cops are Bastards.’ The phrase has a long history, tracing back to the 1940s, and gained national attention during the 2020 mass protests following George Floyd’s killing in Minnesota.

The post featuring the NYPD vehicle design quickly gained attention, with over 10 million views on Twitter by early Saturday. The artist responsible for the decoration and their true intentions, however, remained uncertain. Social media users expressed their skepticism and amusement about the potential hidden meaning behind the design, with comments ranging from “What’s the deal with the ACAB subheading?” to simply “Lmao ACAB.”

The design had mainly generated controversy, diverging from its original intent to celebrate inclusivity and the LGBTQIA+ community. The New York Post, among other outlets, reported on the issue, raising questions about the appropriateness of incorporating such a phrase, whether in its acronym form or not, into a design meant to represent unity.

Despite its virality, the motives behind the potentially contentious design remain largely unknown. As of yet, no official statement from the NYPD or Commissioner Sewell has been released to address the issue directly. However, the design’s unintended message, whether intentional or coincidental, does bring into question the vehicle’s appropriateness, especially when intended to honor and acknowledge the contributions of the LGBTQIA+ community.

**The Controversial NYPD Pride Vehicle: Unintended Message or Deliberate Provocation?**

As questions continue to circulate regarding the NYPD Pride vehicle and its potentially provocative design, many wonder whether the hidden meaning was intended or merely an unfortunate coincidence. The ongoing debate exposes underlying tensions during a month designed to celebrate inclusion and acceptance for the LGBTQIA+ community.
