Michigan State University has apologized for broadcasting an image of Adolf Hitler on the video board at Spartan Stadium. The photo is posted below.
There was outrage on social media after people in the stadium for the game against Michigan posted screenshots. The image was part of the pre-game trivia contest. The question was about the birthplace of Hitler.
But many wondered whether the content was appropriate after the massacre of Jews in Israel just two weeks ago.
“I’m not saying it’s the end of the world or anything but you can’t have Hitler on your pregame scoreboard,” Twitter user Alexander Haenke wrote.
“Let’s not have trivia questions on Hitler mmmkay!” another posted.
The university said the content came from a third-party vendor. They also said their relationship has now been severed.
“MSU is aware that inappropriate content by a third-party source was displayed on the video board prior to the start of tonight’s football game,” MSU spokesperson Matt Larson said in a statement. “We are deeply sorry for the content that was displayed, as this is not representative of our institutional values. MSU will not be using the third-party source going forward and will implement stronger screening and approval procedures for all video board content in the future.”

Michigan State Interim President Teresa K. Woodruff apologized for the image.
“I am deeply sorry for the image displayed at Spartan Stadium, which made many of our community feel alienated and unsafe. It was unacceptable. I asked last evening for a full review of this university event and will take all necessary steps to align our messages and actions to our values,” she said.
“I will work with our Jewish community and every member of minoritized populations to ensure Spartans feel that this is a place where everyone can live, work, go to class and attend events that are welcoming.”
