University withdraws 'offensive' advert after complaints

A university has withdrawn an "offensive" advert, after it was criticised for "promoting the White Messiah Narrative".

The University of Wolverhampton says it decided to pull the billboard, which shows a white woman standing in front of a crowd of black school children, after "careful consideration".

It includes the caption "If you want to explore new worlds. Start here."

Twitter users were quick to call out the "awful" poster and asked the uni to take it down.

The university has apologised, saying the billboard was never meant to be offensive.
