MARIETTA, Ga. (WXIA) – A gruesome Halloween display in front of a Marietta, Georgia business is upsetting neighbors.
It depicts presidential candidate Hillary Clinton decapitated, in a pool of blood.
Albin Blomkvest says he puts up Halloween decorations every year, and that it started it as a way to draw attention to his business. Still, he knew it would be controversial this year.
“I put the Trump dummy out first and somebody stole it, so that was the key that I had to put the Hillary head out,” he says.
“Everyone thinks it’s funny,” he says.
But Hillary Clinton supporter Adrienne White doesn’t think it’s a joke.
“There’s absolutely no taste in portraying a presidential candidate in this manner,” White says.
White also questions why he would depict such graphic violence against women. Blomkvest said that was not his intent.
“I don’t want to portray any of that at all, not in the slightest,” he said. “It was just a Halloween gag.”
Blomkvest said he intends to keep the display up, and it will get even more dramatic before Halloween.
