(JTA) — A swastika made with human feces was found in a dormitory bathroom at the Rhode Island School of Design.
The existence of the swastika was confirmed by the school on Thursday, but reportedly was discovered a week ago. It was discovered in a gender-neutral bathroom, according to reports.
“This level of disrespect and vitriol is completely unacceptable and RISD Public Safety is investigating it as both an act of vandalism and a crime of hate,” a statement from the school said.
The incident is being investigated as an act of vandalism and a potential hate crime, Rhode Island Public Radio reported.
