Minnesota to revoke anti-Muslim license plate

The Minnesota Department of Public Safety apologized Monday for issuing vanity license plates containing a slur against Muslims and said it will revoke them immediately after a photo of the plates caused a stir on social media over the weekend.

The personalized plates read “FMUSLMS.” A photo of the license plate on the back of a pickup, reportedly taken in St. Cloud, was posted on Facebook on Saturday by #UniteCloud, a grassroots organization that works to resolve cultural tension in the St. Cloud area.
