The Minnesota Department of Public Safety said Tuesday a license plate that read “FMUSLMS” should never have been issued and the plates would be revoked immediately.
According to Fox 9, a Snapchat photo of the license plate was shared over the weekend on the Facebook page of Somali community activist Haji Yusuf. Yusuf told Fox 9 the photo was taken by a St. Cloud high school student. Fox 9 confirmed the plates were ordered by a man from Foley, northeast of St. Cloud.
Yusuf is a member of Unite Cloud, an advocacy group that seeks to eliminate discrimination against Muslims and other groups.
