Marines Corps Launches Investigation After 'Black Panther' On Base Theater Sign Is Changed To "Phat Black N*gger"
Colonizers are at it again.
The Marine Corps has launched an investigation after a sign at a base movie theater was altered to spell out a racial slur, Military.com reports.
A sign advertising a 3 p.m. showing of Black Panther at a Camp Foster in Okinawa, Japan was altered to read: “Phat Black N*gger.”
A Facebook fanpage titled "Air Force amn/nco/snco" posted shots of the sign, and claimed someone sent it to them. They tagged a few pages linked to the Okinawa base and reposted the Marines' response to their inquiry.

Officials don’t yet have a suspect, and are unsure of how someone gained access to the roof to change the lettering. The Marine Corps released a brief tweet after the discovery saying the message had been removed and the incident was under investigation.
