The Metropolitan Museum of Art has been forced to defend its longstanding “discretionary admission policy” because people can’t fucking look at the sign up front and read that part where it says that the admission fee optional.

After a several threats and lawsuits, the Met has now announced that it’s adding an official amendment to its 1878 lease with the City of New York, as per the City’s request:

The new amendment confirms and continues the 42-year-long agreement under which the Met and the City first established, and has since maintained, a discretionary admission policy for the institution.

I can’t believe we’re still talking about this.
