Pearl Jam poster of burning White House blasted by Republicans

Pearl Jam plays Washington Grizzly Stadium in Missoula MT

The poster has brought some hate to the band, with plenty of commenters on Instagram and Twitter calling out the band for attacking the president.

The eye-catching image has sparked a flood of reaction with many taking umbrage with the depiction of a destroyed Washington, DC and a dead U.S. president.

Fox News" Chad Pergram also denounced the artwork, saying: "This poster from Pearl Jam is disgusting.It depicts a dead President Trump & a burning WH. "Jon Tester is the real deal and nobody cares more about our country and especially Montana", a message from Ament on the drawing reads. The Senator's re-election campaign, which happens to feature Pearl Jam touring through Montana to raise money for his campaign, is drawing some headlines Wednesday amid controversy over a tour poster.

A spokesman for the Democratic candidate said his team did not like the poster and that they "don't condone violence of any kind".

Pearl Jam's "Rock2Vote" concert in Missoula on Monday was staged independently of the campaign, with a focus on voter turnout.

"When you get 250,000 protestors of all ages, cultures, different sexual orientations... you know, maybe he's uniting people in a way that is gonna be needed in the near future". The AP pointed out that his Republican opponent, Montana State Auditor Matt Rosendale, is shown with a crab claw for a hand while carrying a Maryland flag, in reference to his native state.

Rosendale and the National Republican Senate Committee (NRSC) compared the poster to comedian Kathy Griffin's 2017 video in which she held a bloodied head modeled after Trump's.

While there has been no suggestion that Tester had input into the poster's design, Republicans are criticizing the red-state Democrat for failing to condemn its content.

Reps for the band have been contacted for comment. Special VIP ticket packages to the Monday show at Wash-Griz were donated to Tester's reelection funds. "I never realized you supported hatred and violence, always thought you were about love and peace".
