The Democratic National Committee slammed Breitbart News on Monday after the conservative news website launched its California branch with artwork featuring Nancy Pelosi’s head photoshopped on a twerking Miley Cyrus’ body.

DNC chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz called the images “foul, offensive, and disrespectful to all women.”

“It is a disgusting new low and would be reprehensible against any woman — regardless of party,” she said in a statement. “It’s no wonder the Republicans are having problems appealing to women. If GOP leaders are serious about their rebrand, then both their elected and Party leadership should condemn this outrageous behavior, call on Breitbart News to immediately remove the ad, and not continue to use this website as a forum for their views.”

The images were created by Sabo of Unsavory Agents — the artist responsible for the image of a tattooed Ted Cruz smoking a cigarette, Raw Story reported.

According to Sabo, the images are intended to make the new Breitbart site “edgy as hell.”
