Smithsonian To Remove Offensive Video

Posted by | November 30, 2010 19:07 | Filed under: Top Stories

Bucking to pressure by conservatives, the Smithsonian will remove a four-minute video that contained offensive images.

Martin Sullivan, director of the museum, said the video by David Wojnarowicz shows images that “may be” offensive to some.

“I regret that some reports about the exhibit have created an impression that the video is intentionally sacrilegious,” the statement read. “In fact, the artists’s intention was to depict the suffering of an AIDS victim. It was not the museum’s intention to offend. We are removing the video today. The museum’s statement at the exhibition’s entrance, ‘This exhibition contains mature themes,’ will remain in place.”

That was easy.  Too easy.
