Trump Halloween scarecrow holding Obama's severed head by noose while standing on top of Hillary's sparks outrage
Dave Huff, the owner of Quality Coatings in Fowlerville, has since been forced to remove the Obama mask, but he draped the display with yellow tape saying 'PC-POLICE' instead
A Michigan auto shop owner has come under fire for his Halloween arrangement of a scarecrow depicting President Donald Trump holding Barack Obama's severed head by a noose.
The decoration, placed outside Quality Coatings in Fowlerville, also has Trump standing on Hillary Clinton's head with one leg.
Nearby residents slammed the artwork as "racist, "vulgar", and "anti-American" after a picture of the installation went viral on social media.
"I am disgusted this is in my hometown. Way to display your ignorance. Democrat or Republican this is just wrong," Kathy DeTroyer posted the photo on Facebook to protest what she had seen.
Dave Huff, the shop's owner, has since been forced to remove the Obama mask. However, he draped the display with yellow tape saying "PC-POLICE" instead.
The Trump scarecrow appears to have been stabbed with a knife as red paint flows down his suit. Also, with a backdrop of the star spangled banner, the statue appears to be standing on Hillary Clinton's head.
"I'll never support them. Here's what they thought would be funny for Halloween... Racists! They demonstrated a complete lack of empathy when people complained. They owe their town a public apology. Shame on them," Jason Heinrich commented.
"Racist and violent display. Vote with your $. Don't go here!" Mary Joslin added. "Lacks judgment, lacks respect. Lacks human decency," Haley Sewell wrote. "This is gross and should have never been displayed."
Business owner Huff had no choice but to change the display on Friday after facing immense backlash.
Speaking to the Detroit Free Press on Sunday, Huff described it as "a Halloween decoration that I guess went too far."
According to him, the rope was supposed to represent a spine and that "no race ever went into this thing." Huff insisted he is not racist and explained he was simply trying to depict a move from one of his favorite games—Mortal Kombat.
Furthermore, he also noted he has never voted and is neither Democrat nor Republican.
According to the Free Press, Fowlerville is currently holding a scarecrow competition. However, Huff's business has been banned from taking part in the event.
