Josh Jasper heads the Riverview Center. His commercial depicts a baby as a future rapist, depending on his upbringing. Jasper says the TV spot has run for months in parts of Iowa, Illinois and Wisconsin.

Jasper says a new wave of people has seen the commercial on YouTube and Facebook after seeing a different Riverview Center ad on Super Bowl Sunday. It encouraged people to watch for sexually suggestive and violence-filled ads.

Jasper says the original commercial prompted such a hostile reaction from some people in its new audience that he's notified police.

He says he's been called "man hater" and worse.
