On Saturday, a photo of the offending message was posted to Facebook by a member of the group #UniteCloud, setting off a deluge of unfavorable public commentary.
Minnesota Governor Mark Dayton demanded the plate be both revoked and retrieved.
He also commented, "[The plates are] offensive and the person who requested them should be ashamed."
The Department of Public Services has since apologized and taken possession of the license plate.
