Good News: Controversial Video Pulled from Smithsonian Exhibit
Aimee Herd (December 3, 2010)

"We don't want to offend anyone unnecessarily. It was probably a prudent step just to take that one piece out."

The SmithsonianAfter many complaints from people all over the US, a rebuke from the Catholic League, and warnings from US Representatives John Boehner and Eric Cantor, the Smithsonian's National Portrait Gallery has removed an offensive video that showed ants crawling over a Jesus Christ figure being crucified.



Bill Donahue, president of the Catholic League called the images "sacrilegious" and "hate speech," telling the New York Post that it was "designed to insult Christians."


Smithsonian Museum Director, Martin Sullivan, reportedly issued a statement saying that the video artist's intent was to express the "suffering of an AIDS victim."


However, Sullivan relented and removed the video from the exhibit to avoid offending anyone.


According to the FOX News report, the controversial exhibit is the first of its kind—depicting how sexual orientation and gender identity have shaped American art—to be shown in a major museum setting. It will be at the Smithsonian through February.
