RNC ‘White Elevators’ Sign Triggers Twitter Trolls

”How will my white nationalist supporters know which elevator to use?“ one user jokes, mimicking GOP nominee Donald Trump

The unfortunate decision to post a “white elevator” sign at Cleveland’s Quicken Loans Arena, home of the 2016 Republican National Convention, has red and blue tongues wagging on Twitter.

Patriotic colors of red, white and blue decorate the arena from wall to wall and from ceiling to floor. Yet, all heck broke loose on social media when Wall Street Journal reporter Byron Tau hit Twitter with a pic of one particular sign directing convention gers to designated elevators. Take a look.

Some outlets suggested the signage recalled the Jim Crow South, while others posited that white was likely just one of three color-coded carriages, the others sensibly being red and blue, rounding out the hues of the U.S. flag.

Twitter didn’t care. Take a look at the social platform’s snappiest rejoinders.
