NY Leaders Call For End To Facial Recognition At Madison Square Gardens

  • New York state leaders are calling on New York City’s Madison Square Garden to immediately stop the use of facial recognition technology on fans.
  • State senators Brad Hoylman-SIgal, Liz Krueger, Brian Kavanagh, Kirsten Gonzalez, assembly members Tony Simone and Alex Bores and council member Erik Bottcher were some of the elected officials in attendance at a rally Sunday outside MSG after they said a fourth person had been ejected.
  • “There is absolutely no security purpose in ejecting a young mother from chaperoning her daughter’s Girl Scout troop field trip to the Rockettes,” Hoylman-Sigal said in a statement.
