University Closes Online Art Show When Picture of Trump Being Beheaded is Revealed

Nothing to see here. This is perfectly normal behavior in an institution of higher learning, right?

University scrubs online art show after pic depicting Trump beheading is revealed

Wilmington University in Delaware shut down an online art exhibit after a complaint surfaced regarding a submission showing President Trump getting his head cut off.

The private institution in New Castle initially said it had removed by the piece, a parody of Caravaggio’s 16th century “Judith and Holofernes,” but ended up scrapping the entire show because officials “didn’t know how to delete a single entry,” according to the Delaware News Journal.

Apparently everything got figured out, however, as the entire show — sans the Trump piece — was put back online late this morning.

Although the offensive submission made it through an initial review, the university “revisited” it after someone emailed a screenshot to local media and government officials.

Wilmington U. Senior Director of Administrative and Legal Affairs Joe Aviola said the picture “did not meet the university’s values” — “it’s more violent than it is expression of speech,” he said.
