Update on the chocolate Jesus: Roger Smith Hotel in NYC has canceled the planned exhibit of “My Sweet Lord,” a nude, anatomically correct sculpture of Jesus Christ made of 200 pounds of milk chocolate.
The exhibit was to begin Monday and last until Easter Sunday. But waves of protest convinced hotel President James Knowles to put a wrapper on it.
Ã¢â‚¬Å“Your response … is crystal clear and has brought to our attention the unintended reaction of you and other conscientious friends of ours to the exhibition,Ã¢â‚¬? Knowles wrote in an open letter today.
