A theater group admitted that they hung up “death camp for Trump supporters signs around New York.
A day after anti-Trump supporter fliers in Patchogue caused outrage on social media, a horror theater company has acknowledged it hung the fliers last month as part of promotional video for a show.
The Shock Theater collective told Patch on Wednesday that one of its members had snapped photos of the fliers hanging around town over the weekend. The fliers, seen on street posts and parking meters, read “Death Camps For Trump Supporters Now!!!” Two appeared across the street from Stanley’s Bedding Furniture and two more were posted across from the nearby Family Dollar store.
The signs include a skeletal figure wearing a black jacket, white collared shirt and red tie. The words appear in red overlaying the photo.
A member of the Shock Theater collective, a group that creates haunted houses and horror scenarios that people can participate in, on Tuesday said the company was not responsible for hanging the fliers and that it did not know who hung them. On Wednesday, Liam Wallace, who now handles marketing for the company, acknowledged the company had, in fact, hung the fliers, and that the person was not aware of the show. That person no longer works for the collective.
“We had to let go of a Shock Theater member for posting certain things on our Twiiter-that the former member should have been using to promote our shows,” the collective wrote in a Facebook post. “These certain things won’t be brought up because these certain things pertain to something we can’t yet talk about.”
Imagine if these fliers targeted a left-wing group. They would have claimed this represented a rise fascism and it would have gotten wall to wall coverage by the Mainstream Press.
Luckily this seems to have only been a publicity stunt and not any type of political movement.
