Chulalongkorn University has issued an apology after they displayed a billboard showing Adolf Hitler alongside other famous superheroes, such as Batman and Superman. The billboard soon caught the attention of the global press when students began posting pictures of themselves online doing the infamous Nazi salute.

The Dean of the University explained that was the picture supposed to cause offense, and it was in fact meant as a paradox, hence Hitler was painted in black and white, and not color as the other super heroes.

When asked, Thailand lawyers although condemning the mural, explained that they were sure the university and the students had not intended to act in a malicious and inflammatory manner, and it stemmed more from ignorance over world history.
