UPI News Service, 02/14/2013 

A Florida hotel said a portrait appearing to depict communist revolutionary Ernesto "Che" Guevara was taken down a week after it was put on display.

An employee of the W Hotel in South Beach said complaints about the portrait, which bears some differences from the iconic image of Che Guevara taken by Alberto Diaz "Korda" Gutierrez in 1959 and may not actually depict the Argentine revolutionary, started almost as soon as it was put on display last week, The Miami Herald reported Thursday.

"He was a mass murderer, killed thousands of Cubans execution-style," outraged local man Gus Exposito said in an email. "I spoke to the manager and he referred to it as art!"

Damien O'Connor, manager of the hotel, said the picture was taken down Tuesday.

"We did it as a matter of respect and sensitivity toward the local community," he said. "We are sorry for any inconvenience we may have caused."
