Giant image of Putin caressing a pregnant Trump projected on a New York building
New Yorkers visiting the Apple store on Tuesday were treated to an image of President Vladimir Putin caressing a very pregnant President Trump projected onto the building's outside wall.
The projection was captioned, "Love through hate," and visible the side of the Apple store in the Meatpacking District in Manhattan. It was projected on two other buildings in New York City as well, including one in Brooklyn. These were all areas where voters overwhelmingly voted for Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton over Trump in the 2016 election.
The stunt was coordinated by the app Hater -- a new Tinder-style dating app that matches users with others based on their dislikes -- for Valentine's Day.

"There's a lot of tension out there, regardless of which side you're on," Hater CEO Brendan Alper told Business Insider. "We're just trying to make people laugh. Through humor, hate can turn into love."
And as it turns out, a few onlookers in the two neighborhoods were able to get a laugh at the stunt on Twitter.
This illustration is actually the second viral work of art that depicts Putin and Trump engaged in an intimate act with each other.
Another photo of a mural in Lithuania was shared widely on social media last May depicting the two leaders kissing.
Trump has faced criticism for his comments about Russia. His pick for the White House national security adviser, Michael Flynn, resigned Monday night after reports surfaced that Flynn misled the administration regarding his communications with the Russian ambassador prior to Trump's inauguration.
