(Newser) – Someone at the Minnesota Department of Public Safety was maybe not paying close attention when they issued a personalized license plate reading "FMUSLMS" back in June. The plates got attention after a Somali community activist posted a picture of one on Facebook over the weekend, and now the DPS says they will be immediately revoked, Fox 9 reports. "This personalized license plate should never have been issued; it is offensive and distasteful," reads a DPS statement. Minnesota Gov. Mark Dayton issued his own statement in which he said he is "appalled" the plates were issued.
