Universal Studios Orlando Bans Group Performing Nazi Salute On Ride Photo
A group of attendees was banned from Universal Studio Orlando after they performed the Nazi salute and threw up white supremacy symbols in a ride photo.
According to Metro UK, the offensive photo was taken on the ‘Revenge of The Mummy” ride during the theme park’s annual Passholder Appreciation celebration on Sunday night. It shows the four men performing the Nazi salute and making the “OK” gesture with the other hand, a symbol associated with white supremacy groups. The photo was originally uploaded on the official Universal Orlando’s Passholder Facebook group but was quickly removed due to its content.
Universal Orlando Resort has released a statement after the photo’s removal and says the four men are banned from their parks.
‘Hate has no place here – and we have no tolerance for any display of hatred within our destination.’ ‘We stand for diversity, inclusion, and respect. This photo is appalling and we pulled it from our Facebook page as soon as we became aware of it.’
