Republican National Convention (RNC) organizers are scrambling to replace signs labeling a bank of elevators the “White Elevators.”

The New York Daily News reports that Byron Tau first spotted the sign, and said RNC staffers were replacing it at Quicken Loans Arena “for obvious reasons.”

The site also reports that it remains unclear who vetted the sign or why it was hung in the first place. Neither RNC organizers nor Trump’s campaign responded to its request for further comment.

The RNC kicks off Monday and runs through Thursday night, when thousands of Republicans are expected to formally nominate Donald Trump for president of the United States. Trump is expected to speak on Thursday as he formally accepts the party’s nomination.
