NY leaders call on Madison Square Garden to stop using facial recognition tech: ‘Sets a dangerous precedent’

MSG Entertainment also owns New York’s Radio City Music Hall. “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. “MSG Entertainment is using facial recognition systems to automate discrimination, violate individuals’ privacy and chill any criticism of the company. It sets a dangerous precedent to permit MSG Entertainment to maintain such power, and we demand they cease the use of this highly flawed technology immediately.”
