Pearl Jam shares poster depicting Trump's corpse and a burning White House

At the London show that included the balloon flying outside, Vedder said that Trump was " actually bringing people together in a great way.

The poster, which was posted before the band's show at Washington-Grizzly Stadium in Missoula, Mont. on Monday, was co-created by bassist Jeff Ament and artist Bobby "Draws Skullz" Brown.

The National Republican Senate Committee compared the artwork to an infamous photo of American comedian Kathy Griffin holding a fake decapitated head of the USA president, which cost her a contract with CNN and led to several of her shows being cancelled. Not only did Griffin lose several gigs, but Americans were subjected to weeks of commentary on what does and does not count as a threat against the president.

The concert, called Rock2Vote, was independent of the campaign, but Tester's team purchased tickets and tied it to a separate event, a reception the night before with the senator and Pearl Jam's Jeff Ament, according to the Post.

Pearl Jam are on the receiving end of a hefty dose of criticism right now, with some fans opposed to their new tour poster which depicts the death of Donald Trump.

The release of a political poster depicting a burning White House is drawing a lot of fire online and maybe seeing some fans turn their back on the legendary group. Rosendale , who is originally from Maryland, called the poster "disgusting and reprehensible" and called on Tester "to denounce this act of violence and blatant display of extremism".

"Nobody cares more about our country and especially Montana", Ament wrote in the note. That I would brag about all day", reported The Washington Post .

Tester's opponent, Rosendale, took to Twitter to criticise the image calling for Tester to apologise.

U.S. Sen. Jon Tester's campaign is disavowing a Pearl Jam concert poster that shows a burning White House and what appears to be the skeleton of President Donald Trump. "And we don't condone violence of any kind".

Pearl Jam has yet to comment on the backlash.

Hours after Moore's statement was realeased, Meagher said the campaign did not help design the poster and did not approve of it.
