Okay, so I was watching this game but apparently missed it in the pre-game.
Yeah, the picture is... pretty bad.
Before the rivalry game against Michigan began, the image appeared on the jumbotron as part of a trivia question about Hitler's place of birth.
Michigan State issued a statement, without mentioning the image of Hitler directly, saying the school used a third party for the trivia content and will no longer be using that company.
"We are deeply sorry for the content that was displayed, as this is not representative of our institutional values," Michigan State associate athletic director Matt Larson said in a statement. "MSU will not be using the third-party source going forward and will implement stronger screening and approval procedures for all videoboard content in the future."
What was this third party? Are they actually screening these questions or are they just outsourcing it to AI?
Who in the world would have Hitler's birthplace as a question in the first place, let alone on the brink of WW3 with what's happening in Israel???
This happened the SAME DAY as a Jewish synagogue leader was murdered down the road in Detroit.
Not a good look, MSU. You started off your game with Hitler trivia and ended with a FORTY-NINE to ZERO loss to Michigan (The Detroit Free Press labels this MSU's "season from hell.").
Massive L, Spartans.
