    Feces Swastika Found in Gender-Neutral Bathroom at Art School

    One of the top art schools in the U.S. is investigating after anti-Semitic graffiti made out of human waste was found in a gender-neutral bathroom.

    WJAR-TV reports that the Rhode Island School of Design told students the swastika was discovered over the weekend in a dormitory bathroom.

    The college, known as RISD , says in a statement that the level of "disrespect and vitriol is completely unacceptable." Public safety officials are investigating it as an act of vandalism and a hate crime.

    The school says it has met with students on the dorm floor and has encouraged those with information to come forward.
