Thai University Says Sorry Following Outcry About Hitler Billboard
The Dean of a leading Thai university has issued a public apology after students at Chulangkorn University painted a super hero billboard to help celebrate their graduation and include an image of Hitler alongside Superman, Captain America and Batman.
The story came to light when students posted pictures of themselves online in front of the mural copying the infamous Nazi salute. There was worldwide outcry, and apologies have been thick and fast ever since.
Although not condoning the images Thailand lawyers have been quick to point out the issue will have reason through sheer ignorance rather than being inflammatory behavior.
