New York State Republicans say Democratic Mayor Bill de Blasio is like the submissive character in “Fifty Shades of Grey,” dominated by the Rev. Al Sharpton.

The Daily News says the GOP released a poster through Twitter Tuesday that spoofs the popular movie.

“Fifty Shades of Bill” is printed in large letters.

Other phrases appear below: “Tied up by his habitual lateness. … Dominated by the duties of his office. … Handcuffed by his poor management of the NYPD.”

The mayor’s face is superimposed over an image of the female protagonist. His head rests on Sharpton’s shoulder.

GOP spokesman David Laska says both the movie’s heroine and the mayor have completely ceded control over their situation to outside forces.

The mayor’s office declined to comment.
