U.S. Marines attending a weekend showing of “Black Panther” at their base in Okinawa, Japan, were confronted with a theater marquee showing a racist slur instead of the movie’s title. Military officials were investigating how someone gained access to the theater roof at Camp Hansen before Sunday afternoon’s show and changed the sign, according to the military newspaper Stars & Stripes. The slur has since been removed. A photo of the marquee was posted on Facebook with some of the letters on the offending word blocked out.
