A New Pearl Jam Tour Poster Depicts Donald Trump’s Rotting Corpse

A New Pearl Jam Tour Poster Depicts Donald Trump’s Rotting Corpse

Pearl Jam 's latest concert poster is causing a stir for depicting a burning White House and a dead President Trump.

"The depiction of the skeletal remains of President Trump and a burning White House is reprehensible and shows just how completely unhinged and radicalized the far-left has become", a campaign spokesperson told NewsTalk KGVO.

While it doesn't seem as though Pearl Jam are too fussed by the criticism coming their way, it remains to be seen what Donald Trump will have to say about the scene depicted in the above poster. He has called for rival Tester to denounce the "blatant display of extremism".

Pearl Jam performed two shows last week in Seattle as benefit concerts to help combat the city's homelessness epidemic. Bassist Jeff Ament, who is from Montana, collaborated with an artist named Bobby Brown to create a promotional poster for the event.

According to Billboard , during a show in London in July while a giant Baby Trump balloon float nearby, lead singer Eddie Vedder said to the crowd: "I know at home it feels very divisive".

"In the image, Tester flies gleefully overhead - smiling at Trump's demise - aboard a green tractor as smoke billows from the White House spelling out the word, 'vote, '" Calvin Moore, a spokesman for the National Republican Senate Committee, said in a post on the NRSC website. "Maryland Matt. Stars and Stripes as flames".

This image taken from the Twitter account of Pearl Jam shows the official poster from the band's concert, Monday, in Missoula, Mont.

The band shared the poster to Instagram as an endorsement for Jon Tester, a Democratic Senator from Montana, who is running for reelection. "And we don't condone violence of any kind".

Ament endorsed Tester in a message accompanying the poster's release on Tuesday, calling the senator "the real deal".

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".
