Two Transportation Security Administration officers were placed on leave after a racist display was discovered in a baggage-screening area at Miami International Airport, the agency said on Tuesday.

As seen in a photo obtained by CNN, the display included two toy gorillas and a noose. A spokeswoman for the agency declined to give a detailed description of the display, which was in a part of the airport not accessible to the public, citing concern that doing so would draw further attention to the offensive imagery.

“The display was immediately removed and an investigation was launched into who was responsible for the unacceptable behavior,” the agency said in a statement. “T.S.A. does not tolerate racist or offensive behavior and those found responsible will be held accountable for their actions.”
