Republicans blast Pearl Jam poster of burning White House, skeleton

Pearl-Jam-Poster-Dead-Trump

"It depicts a dead President Trump and a burning White House", Rosendale added.

The poster was circulated to promote Pearl Jam's show in Missoula, Mont., on Monday, which doubled as a fundraiser for the reelection of Democrat senator Jon Tester.

But it was this poster, sold at the venue last night that started generating debate Tuesday afternoon after it caught the attention of conservative media news outlets.

Never ones to hold back, Pearl Jam have today released a tour poster commemorating their show in Missoula, Montana earlier this week, and it is ruffling quite a few feathers.

The artwork immediately drew anger from Tester's Republican rival, Matt Rosendale, who called it "disgusting and reprehensible".

Ament told The Associated Press in April that the band wanted to use the Montana concert to support local advocacy groups, encourage voter participation and boost Tester's campaign.

Ament and Bobby Brown designed the artwork, according to Pearl Jam.

Furthermore, a close read reveals a man who may be meant to represent President Donald J. Trump dead, on the ground, being worked over by a vulture-like bald eagle. "Maryland Matt. Stars n stripes as flames", read Ament's notes. A spokesman said he didn't like the poster.

The National Republican Senate Committee, which is supporting Rosendale's campaign, also blamed Tester for not speaking out against the poster it called "gory".

Many Pearl Jam fans have expressed shock and disappointment at the poster, and several have vowed to boycott future shows and albums.

Others aren't bothered by the poster - a writer for Spin Magazine said the poster shouldn't surprise anyone familiar with Pearl Jam's politics, and wrote, "It's more cartoonish than grisly, but it's still managed to rankle its right-wing targets".

"In a state Trump won by 20 points, Senator Tester's silence.is quickly showing Montanans there's no stoop too low for him when it comes to attacking President Trump and his supporters", NRSC spokesperson Calvin Moore said in a statement. "And we don't condone violence of any kind".
