NASHVILLE, Tenn. — A Nashville restaurant has removed an image of the Confederate flag after criticism of it arose in the Nashville mayoral race.

The Tennessean (http://tnne.ws/1fobg5n) reports mayoral candidate Charles Robert Bone, who is an investor in the Acme Feed & Seed restaurant and bar, asked that the image be removed after it was criticized on a Facebook page that also included his photo.

Restaurant owner Tom Morales told the newspaper on Saturday that the image was removed “so as not to confuse anyone about Acme’s, our investors’ and our supporters’ commitment to all people of Nashville.”

He said the artwork, which shows the flag on a bikini bottom, is a “satirical commentary on Southern culture.”
