Arkansas state senator Jason Rapert has taken to social media to call for a boycott of the Vino's venue in Little Rock over the promotional graphic used for an upcoming Eyehategod show. Said graphic shows Rapert biting an infant (see below). Rapert is demanding that Vino's cancel the event and issue an apology:
"Boycott Vinos in Little Rock... Friends, I rarely share with you the hateful posts and pictures that extreme liberals make about me to torment my stand for better moral values. But this time I want you to see what they have done. They use my image on an event without my permission and they depict me 'biting a baby' in my mouth. A wicked and evil depiction on an event entitled 'Eyehategod'. I call on Vinos in Little Rock to cancel this event and apologize for such a disrespectful image that shows the dehumanization of babies lives. It is disrespectful of all who value babies lives and people of faith. They also clearly welcome the Satanic Temple in another post I am sharing. I urge you NOT to frequent Vinos and stand against their hateful rhetoric."
