Beneath that smoke is a burning White House. 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.

But it was this poster, sold at the venue last night that started generating debate Tuesday afternoon after it caught the attention of conservative media news outlets.

According to Sputnik News, the artwork was a collaborative effort by the band's Jeff Ament and artist Bobby Draws Skulls.

At the London show that included the balloon flying outside, Vedder said that Trump was " actually bringing people together in a great way. "It's time for Jon Tester to denounce this act of violence and blatant display of extremism!".

This is disgusting and Democrat Jon Tester seems perfectly OK with it. Tester should apologize to @realDonaldTrump & the people of Montana.

While it doesn't seem as though Pearl Jam are too fussed by the criticism coming their way, it remains to be seen what Donald Trump will have to say about the scene depicted in the above poster.

A poster for a recent Pearl Jam concert has sparked outrage for depicting the corpse of President Donald Trump. "Maryland Matt. Stars n stripes as flames". "Jon Tester is the real deal and no one cares more about our country and especially Montana".

The National Republican Senate Committee compared the poster to other examples of public figures "encouraging violence" against Trump, like an image of comedian Kathy Griffin holding up a bloody, fake Trump head.

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

Montana State Senate Republican candidate Matt Rosendale is one of the objectors to take aim at Pearl Jam by describing the concert poster as "disgusting".
