Restaurant Takes Down Artwork Displaying Confederate Flag

June 22, 2015

The Nashville restaurant came under fire for its wall decor.

Nashville restaurant Acme Feed & Seed came under fire recently for displaying a piece of artwork that features an image of the Confederate flag. According to USA Today, the large image is of a cartoon caricature of a woman wearing Confederate flag bikini bottoms. The image made headlines after someone anonymously created a Boycott Acme Facebook page featuring a doctored photo of mayoral candidate (and Acme Feed & Seed investor) Charles Robert Bone next to the painting. The image is captioned: “This is offensive and should have no place in Nashville!”
