The president has not yet commented on the Pearl Jam poster, which was created to promote a Rock2Vote concert aimed at encouraging young people to vote against the Republicans in the November midterm elections. "It's time for [Tester] to denounce this act of violence and blatant display of extremism!".

The event was a benefit to urge fans to get out and vote in the Montana Senate election in November, with Ament known to be a firm supporter of current Democratic Senator Jon Tester. In the lower righthand corner, a caricature of candidate Matt Rosendale waves a "Maryland" flag.

The poster has brought some hate to the band, with plenty of commenters on Instagram and Twitter calling out the band for attacking the president.

Ament and Bobby Brown designed the artwork, according to Pearl Jam.

Pearl Jam have found themselves in a bit of hot water for their latest move - a gig poster depicting the rotting corpse of Donald Trump being eaten by a bald eagle in front of a burning White House.

While there has been no suggestion that Tester had input into the poster's design, Republicans are criticizing the red-state Democrat for failing to condemn its content.

Jeff Ament said in a statement Wednesday that he was the "sole conceptualist" for the poster depicting a burning White House and what appears to be President Donald Trump's skeleton. "And we don't condone violence of any kind".

In their 28-year existence, Seattle grunge legends Pearl Jam have never been ones to shy away from speaking their mind when it comes to politics. It features an image President Trump's dead body, and was used in the promotion of an August 13 concert that helped raise money for Tester's campaign.

As expected, a number of fans have taken to social media to berate the band for their "insensitive" artwork, with the group's Instagram page now overrun with comments.
