Face of the day

ANDY JACKSON/STUFF
Kaumātua Peter Moeahu said the painting denigrates Māori and expected the gallery not to exhibit it.

SUPPLIED/TE PAPA
William Strutt’s ‘View of Mt Egmont, Taranaki, New Zealand’ has been slammed as “racist” for its depiction of Maori.

That’s racist gif

Sigh… we have idiots pulling down historic statues all over the west because they are offended by old white men and now even historic oil paintings are under threat. What’s next? Will today’s face of the day Peter Moeahu want us to burn paintings now as well?
