Thai University Apologizes For Hitler Banner

Postby mousepad on Mon Jul 15, 2013 10:47 pm

Thailand's premier university has apologized for displaying a billboard that showed Adolf Hitler alongside Superman and other superheroes, saying Monday it was painted by ignorant students who didn't realize Hitler's image would offend anyone.

The huge billboard was placed outside the art faculty of Chulalongkorn University as part of a tribute to this year's graduating class. It said "Congratulations" in bold white letters and showed Hitler with his arm raised in a Nazi salute next to Batman, Captain America, the Incredible Hulk and Iron Man.

How could they not know it would be offensive?

Congratulations and Hitler do not belong in the same room. Sad that in this day and age some still display Hitler and then act shocked when people complain.
Cheese Please!
