Bomb threat at museum in Sweden caught in ‘racist cake’ scandal; Cake depicted naked African woman, featured actress in blackface

Swedish police on Tuesday responded to a bomb threat at a Stockholm museum that is caught up in a racial scandal involving the country’s minister of culture.

Authorities said the Moderna Museet was evacuated after officers in the southern city of Malmo received the threat, and a bomb squad was dispatched to the museum, The Associated Press reported.

Sweden's minister of culture, Lena Adelsohn Liljeroth, has come under fire for attending a party at the museum featuring a large cake depicting a naked African woman.

An actor in minstrel-style blackface served as the cake’s head and screamed in mock pain while guests carved slices from the pastry's nude torso, videos from the event showed.
