The U.S. Embassy in the South Korean capital, Seoul, removed a banner against racism after U.S. President Trump expressed his displeasure.
The big screen featured ‘Black Lives Matter’, referring to violent police crackdowns on blacks in the United States and subsequent global protests following George Floyd’s death last month.
The U.S. State Department also disliked the banner on the official representation of the United States, American media report.
The spell with which the embassy wanted to support the pursuit of change had been there since Saturday.
In addition to the curtain against racism, a banner for gay rights also disappeared. Instead of the two canvases, a banner was added that refers to the Korean War, seventy years ago.
