Pearl Jam Under Fire For Concert Poster

Some people aren’t fans of the art

Pearl Jam makes no bones about their displeasure towards President Trump, but their latest concert poster has the band coming under fire. Designed by bassist Jeff Ament and artist Bobby Brown to promote their Missoula, Montana show on Monday night, the poster depicts the White House on fire, with Trump’s corpse being picked apart by a bald eagle on the White House lawn. The show also served as a fundraiser for the re-election campaign of Democrat Senator Jon Tester, which has Tester’s challenger pretty angry. Republican Matt Rosendale took to Twitter to call the poster “disgusting and reprehensible” and asked the sitting Senator “to denounce this act of violence and blatant display of extremism!”

Did the band go too far with this poster? Should Tester make a statement? Should Republicans expect that most bands wouldn’t be fans?
