WAUKESHA- A project meant to teach a lesson is actually creating a controversy.

A makeshift wall at Carroll University filled with vile words was supposed to spark a discussion about fighting prejudice, but some people say the wall has done more harm than good.

Members of the Pi Lambda Phi Fraternity constructed the wall Monday and invited students to write all the sexist, racist and homophobic names they've ever been called on it.

The wall was moved from it's original street-side spot, after neighbors and parents of a nearby elementary school complained. 

Then someone spray painted a portion of the wall and some students feel vile language, just perpetuates hate.

The wall will be around until Thursday and students will be charged a small fee to take a hammer to it.

Proceeds will be donated to an anti-defamation group.
