Chicago's United Center hosted the final day of the Nation of Islam's annual Saviours' Day commemoration featuring a keynote address on Sunday by the group's leader Louis Farrakhan. The Script reported Farrakhan's remarks disparaging "The Holocaust" as a term reserved for Hilter's genocide of Jews, as well as a speech by a man called a "Holocaust denier" by both the Anti-Defamation League and the Southern Poverty Law Center.
While the United Center promoted Farrakhan's appearance on its website and on Twitter in the run-up to the event, both the website and the United Center's Twitter feed have been scrubbed of references to Saviours' Day 2019. (A review of the website and Twitter indicates the United Center does not typically delete promotions for past events.)
Below is an archived version of the United Center website's promo for Saviours' Day 2019 as it appeared as of Sunday, February 17:
The same website address now returns a message, "Sorry, the page you requested was not found on our server.":
The United Center also hosted Saviours' Day in 2010 according to tweets on the United Center's Twitter account, and in 2012 according to the Nation of Islam's The Final Call publication.
Although the United Center logo feature the globe logo of United Airlines, that company's connection to the United Center is limited to a name licensing agreement.
The United Center did not respond to inquiries from The Script before the event regarding the Center's hosting of and promotion of the event. Thus far, United Center Senior Marketing Manager Derrick Christian has not responded to inquiries about the deletion of the promotional page and tweet above and whether or not the move has implications for future Nation of Islam events at the United Center venue.
The Nation of Islam did not respond to a request for comment either.
