A man in Minnesota had a vanity plate reading "FMUSLMS" that went virtually unnoticed for about eight months. People applying for vanity plates in Minnesota are required to submit and explanation of the meaning behind the plate when they apply. Clearly, whoever issued this plate must have skimmed through his application very quickly. 

This hateful plate was brought to the attention of the state by the Facebook group UniteCloud. The group's main focus is to bring peace and understanding to the St. Cloud area.

According to the video and description, the Minnesota Department of Public Safety made a statement admitting that the license plate was not appropriate:

This personalized license plate should never have been issued; it is offensive and distasteful. We are in the process of revoking and taking possession of the plates today. The Department of Public Safety apologizes for this error. The Driver and Vehicle Services Division is reviewing its process for approving personalized license plates today and will immediately provide additional review and oversight of applications.
