After suffering huge repercussions on the internet, punk group Dead Kennedys decided to take down a political poster made to promote an upcoming tour in Brazil. The polarized political mood that the country is experiencing influenced the decision.

Artist Christiano Suarez created the exclusive artwork to announce four shows that the band will play in May. In the image, a family with faces of Bozo the clown are dressed in Brazilian football team selection shirts and holding arms.

In the background, there are war tanks and a favela is on fire. One of the people says: “I love the smell of dead poor people in the morning.”

The internauts quickly started commenting on the clear allusion to president Jair Bolsonaro—who is called Bozo— and his voters.
