Anti-Semitic Graffiti Found At ASU (2018-10-08 14:57:48)

Anti-Semitic graffiti was found in one of Appalachian State University’s free expression tunnels on September 30th.

The Watauga Democrat reports the picture depicted a Nazi flag with writing that said “heil Hitler” and “the Holocaust was a good thing.”

According to the report, a Jewish fraternity found the images and painted over them.

The university investigated the incident, but does not know who painted the images.

The two tunnels under Rivers Street were officially designated as free expression tunnels in 2009.

ASU’s policy states the university generally will not regulate or censor the content painted in the tunnels, but some forms of expression, such as obscenity, defamation and harassment are not constitutionally protected.
